The West Indies cricket board decided to make the good use of the pandemic cool off period as they organised the Super 50, the annual domestic ODI competition. With the tournament being played at a time when all big players of the national team are at home (choosing not to tour Bangladesh due to quarantine), the tournament is sure to get a lot of traffic. 

It will be the first tournament of 2021 in the Caribbeans. The big names at the display will be West Indies Men's ODI Captain, Kieron Pollard, Test skipper Jason Holder, big-hitting young guns in Nicholas Pooran and Shimron Hetmyer and many other players who have represented West Indies fo a long period of time. Sheldon Cottrell, Andre Fletcher, Hayden Walsh Jr., Roston Chase, Denesh Ramdin and Darren Bravo are some of the names whose talents would be at display in the 21-day affair. 

Talking about the opportunity to represent his home side in List A tournament after a long time, Pollard said, “It is very good that cricket is coming back to the Caribbean. Players will get the opportunity to showcase their skills and entertain our fans.”

“It has been a trying 2020 for cricketers and the whole Caribbean, so it is really good that we have the CG Insurance Super50 Cup being played at this time and hopefully, it can unearth some new talent,” added the 33-year-old who would be captaining Trinidad and Tobago. 

The first-ever ODI tournament between the islands combining West Indies was played in 1976 and this 2021 edition will be the 45th season of it. In this year’s tournament, six teams would be participating in the competition. Among these teams, Trinidad and Tobago have won the most number of titles (11) followed by Guyana (10). While Jamaica, this time around led by Rovaman Powell has eight titles in its kitty so far, Jason Holder led Barbados would be looking to win their eighth title. 

Other teams which have laid their hands at the title are the Leeward Islands and the Windward Islands, both of which have won four titles each. Combined Campuses and Colleges team, which represented the education institutes in all the islands combined won the tournament in 2018-19 season while the West Indies emerging side won the last edition in 2019-20 and both these sides won’t be part of this year’s edition.
