Johannesburg: UAE may get the opportunity to host the 2010 Twenty20 World Cup. West Indies are supposed to host the event but the dispute between their players and the board has reached such heights that the event may now be shifted to UAE.

There is also this fear that if West Indies fields a weak team, like they did in the Champions Trophy without their star players, the spectator turn out for the matches may be very low in their country for the event.

Though the ICC has not officially confirmed this matter, it is understood that the executive committee members might meet Dr Ernest Hilaire, the representative from West Indies to discuss the matter.

Are we watching last days of once great West Indies cricket?
I hope not. It would be very painful for some of us. :(

unfortunately this might be the start.... of the FALL.

I am just surprised at the 2nd string West Indies side.... they dont have a 'strong' team pipelined after their main team players. And if that is the case then this might be it..... :(

That's what it is. It's Bangladeshi version of IPL, with franchised teams and auctioned players (including foreign cricketers). Though, unlike IPL, it's a single venue league. The league originated from Chittagong, thus appropriately named Port City Cricket League. The next version of the league will take place in Sharjah next March-April.

You can find more on the league from this thread - http://www.banglacricket.com/alochona/showthread.php?t=30901
