“I wish to extend my congratulations to the Tallawah Cricket Team, especially team captain Chris Gayle, for winning the inaugural Caribbean Premier League (CPL) Twenty20 competition.

The victory by the team must be used as further motivation for all those young persons who wish to get involved in cricket in Jamaica.

On a regional scale, the outpouring of support, the interest and excitement generated by the matches and the level of organisation demonstrated by those responsible for the competition clearly suggest that the CPL has the potential to be a staple on the West Indies cricket calendar.

The invaluable contribution of the sponsors, the dedication of the management and coaching staff of each team, and the discipline and application of all the players contributed to an unforgettable first CPL”.
