The format of the tournament will be a round-robin one, at the end of which the two top teams will progress to the championship match.
Chairman of CCUSA Mahammad Qureshi says Legends cricket coming to the Caribbean is big for his organization. “What we have done is to get Legends players interested in going to the Caribbean to play there. This will open many doors for collaboration between Grenada and the rest of the world in terms of cricket.
