Barbados to host Caribbean Twenty20 final

ESPNcricinfo staff

The Kensington Oval in Barbados has been chosen to host the final stages of the Caribbean Twenty20 2011.

Barbados held off competition from Antigua and Trinidad and Tobago, who both submitted bids. The Barbados ground, which was the venue for this year's World Twenty20 final, will host the second round, semi-finals and final of the domestic tournament which takes place in January next year.

The Sir Vivian Richards ground in Antigua continues its rehabilitation from the ignominy of the 2009 Test against England, which had to be abandoned after 10 balls due to an unfit outfield, and will be the venue for the first round of Caribbean Twenty20.

The 2010 tournament was won by Guyana in July, a success that booked them a lucrative place in the Champions League Twenty20.

    Been there to watch 2007 WC final and 2010 T/20 final. Lovely place to visit and to watch cricket. Another positive step to win back the local involement in cricket. One of the better place to spend winter vacation and I'm sure Enlish playesr will love it.

    Good news!Barbados is well known for its preparation and organisation,and to get things done on time !Barbados(this small Island cooliechile) is the breeding ground of great WI cricketers over the years,and have contributed more to the success of the WI over the years,than any other Island,so it comes as no surprise to me.As a matter of fact if Barbados was in charge of WI cricket,we would not be in the doldrums today!
