Trinidad and Tobago fails to impress the WICB, so the Caribbean Twenty20 tournament will be held in Antigua and Barbados next year.

No doubt Twenty20 2011 will be as great a success as it was this year when England beat Australia by 7 wickets at the Kensington Oval, Barbados.

We will post more details about the tournament as we get them.

See below for more details on the story from Trinidad Express Newspapers…

Trinidad and Tobago will not be hosting next year’s Caribbean Twenty20 tournament.

According to Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) executive member Patrick Rampersad, T&T’s bid was rejected by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), who have decided that the January tournament will now be held at two venues, with the preliminary matches being played in Antigua and the semi-finals and final taking place in Barbados.

It was disappointing for the TTCB, especially after they successfully hosted the semi-finals and final of the 2010 edition of the tournament at Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain last July.
