COCO PALM HOSTS CPL CRICKETERS AND CHEERLEADERS
Coco Palm welcomed the Caribbean Premier Cricket League (CPL) and three of the Caribbean cricket teams during the recent CPL 2018 Twenty20 tournament at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet.
Cricket fever was palpable with players and coaches making Coco Palm their base. Defending CPL champions Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR), owned by Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh, along with the Barbados Tridents and St Kitts Patriots, were hosted at the resort. Mark Ferguson, Coco Palm’s Managing Director said, “CPL and the three teams made Coco Palm their home during the week creating a fantastic atmosphere for all who enjoyed our strong Caribbean vibe and cuisine by Trini Chef Richardson.”
During the competition, CPL hosted a private party at Ti Bananne Caribbean Bar, sponsored by Digicel, El Dorado and Carib Beer, and supported by Peter & Company Ltd. DJ Hyper D spun live music.
Coco Palm has been home to many cricketers over the years with the roster now including TKR’s Captain Dwayne Bravo, teammate Brendon McCullum and Darren Bravo and Barbados Trident’s Captain Jason Holder with Martin Guptil and team mates.
