Pete Russell, CEO of the Caribbean Premier League, said:\u00a0\u201cWe were delighted with the reception the first WCPL received in 2022 and we cannot wait for the start of an expanded tournament this year. These hugely talented players deserve the best chance to showcase their talents and the WCPL is the perfect stage for this. Women\u2019s cricket is growing rapidly, and it is pleasing for CPL to play a significant part in that growth.\u201d<\/p>\n

Dr Kishore Shallow, President of Cricket West Indies, said:\u00a0\u201cCWI is committed to greater investment in the growth and development of women\u2019s cricket. Consistent with this is the expansion of the WCPL 2023 to feature more matches and playing across venues in the region. This opportunity for our regional cricketers is invaluable. Additionally, there is no doubt that the spectacle of the tournament will inspire more young female cricketers to take up the sport. It is certainly an exciting time for all parties involved.\u201d<\/p>\n

Ambikah Mongroo, Senior Vice President \u2013 Massy Group, said: \u201cLast year the Massy Group shared its new Vision – A Global Force For Good, An Investment Holding Company with a Caribbean Heart.\u00a0\u00a0This Vision is underpinned by our belief in the unique advantages that the warmth and vitality of our Caribbean identity lends us on the global stage.\u00a0\u00a0As Massy celebrates our 100th anniversary in 2023, supporting the WCPL exemplifies what we believe to be truly representative of our Caribbean heart.\u00a0\u00a0It\u2019s the passion for the game of cricket, it\u2019s the energy of our Caribbean women and the combination of both to have global reach through the CPL platforms.<\/p>\n


The Women\u2019s Caribbean Premier League (WCPL) was founded in 2022.\u00a0\u00a0The first WCPL took place in St Kitts & Nevis in 2022 with the Trinbago Knight Riders crowned the inaugural champions. Deandra Dottin was player of the tournament as well as the captain of the winning side.<\/p>\n

The 2023 season will see an expanded schedule with seven matches played in Barbados and Trinidad. The three teams competing in the 2023 season will be the Barbados Royals, Guyana Amazon Warriors and the Trinbago Knight Riders. The WCPL sees the best players from across the region joined by the best overseas talent from around the world with the party atmosphere for which the Caribbean is so famous.\u00a0\u2028\u2028The Republic Bank Caribbean Premier League was founded in 2013 and sees the best men\u2019s players from across the region join overseas superstars for world class T20 cricket.<\/p>\n

Massy Group along with participating brands Massy Stores and Shell Lubricants, have confirmed that they will be the title sponsor for the inaugural Women\u2019s Caribbean Premier League (WCPL) which gets underway on 31 August in St Kitts.<\/p>\n

The Massy Women\u2019s Caribbean Premier League (WCPL) will feature three teams, the Barbados Royals, Guyana Amazon Warriors and the Trinbago Knight Riders. The teams will play each other in four exciting Twenty20 matches at Warner Park, one of the fastest scoring grounds in world cricket. The teams will be captained by Hayley Matthews (Barbados Royals), Stafanie Taylor (Guyana Amazon Warriors) and Deandra Dottin (Trinbago Knight Riders).<\/p>\n

Each of the three Massy WCPL teams will have the best players from the region as well as exciting overseas players to round out their squads as women\u2019s cricket is given huge exposure across the Caribbean and around the world.<\/p>\n

\u201cAs one of the largest employers in the region, a significant percentage of our workforce is comprised of women.\u00a0 For some companies such as Massy Stores which operates from 59 locations across the English-speaking Caribbean the workforce is on average 70% female.\u00a0 That means that creating opportunities for women to grow and develop is integral to our business and inherent to our purpose.\u00a0 With sponsorship support which we hope will continue to grow for years to come, we believe that CPL will continue to develop this tournament to create opportunities for professional, Caribbean, female athletes,\u201d commented Marc Rostant, Senior Vice President, Massy Motors who spoke on behalf of the Massy Group to announce the sponsorship.<\/p>\n

Jamie Stewart, CPL\u2019s Commercial Director, said: \u201cWhen we set out to create the Women\u2019s CPL, it was important to find a partner that would help build the profile and stature of the game and players around the region, with the ultimate goal of making them household faces. In Massy, one of the region\u2019s great companies, we feel the WCPL has the perfect partner. Massy Group, via their stories spanning the eastern Caribbean, touch more people each day than any other company in the region. We thank the Group and the Stores and Auto divisions for believing in the vision, and look forward to working with them to give the region\u2019s female stars the support and exposure they deserve.\u201d<\/p>\n

Chocolate Hot Cross Buns<\/strong><\/em><\/p>\n


  1. 1 cup butter<\/li>\n
  2. 1 cup sugar<\/li>\n
  3. 2 tsp salt<\/li>\n
  4. 4 tbsp cocoa powder (we used local, sun eaters)<\/li>\n
  5. 3 eggs<\/li>\n
  6. 6 cups flour<\/li>\n
  7. 6 tbsp cornstarch<\/li>\n
  8. 4 tsp yeast<\/li>\n
  9. 1 1\/2 cups milk<\/li>\n
  10. 6 tsp cocoa powder<\/li>\n
  11. 1\/4 cup nibs<\/li>\n
  12. 1\/4 cup chopped chocolate (we used 70% local dark)<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n


    1. Cream butter and sugar until butter is light in colour and then beat eggs in one at a time.<\/li>\n
    2. Add in cocoa powder and salt and mix until combined.<\/li>\n
    3. Measure all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix (add yeast away from salt or mix salt into dry ingredients first before adding yeast since salt will kill the yeast)<\/li>\n
    4. Add dry and wet ingredients into the creamed butter mixture, starting with the flour and alternating between the two.<\/li>\n
    5. The mixture will form a soft dough that is still a little sticky, cover the dough and leave to proof until it has doubled in size.<\/li>\n
    6. When it has doubled add in the nibs and chocolate (we chose these mix in but you can use whatever you would like!)<\/li>\n
    7. Leave the dough to proof again for 15 minutes before using.<\/li>\n
    8. Portion the dough into 100g pieces and roll into balls. place them in a greased pan and cover them, allowing them to proof until almost doubled.<\/li>\n
    9. Brush with egg wash or milk wash and bake at 400 degrees F for about 15-20 minutes.<\/li>\n
    10. remove from the heat and allow to cool before filling etc.<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n

      Orange Mint Pastry Cream<\/strong><\/em><\/p>\n

      2. 1\/4 cup corn starch<\/li>\n
      3. 1\/2 cup sugar (divided into two parts)<\/li>\n
      4. 2 egg yolks<\/li>\n
      5. 1 whole egg<\/li>\n
      6. 1 tsp vanilla<\/li>\n
      7. 1 tbsp butter<\/li>\n
      8. one orange zested or some orange peels<\/li>\n
      9. one spring of mint<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n


        1. Place milk in a pot to boil with orange, mint and half the sugar (watch this carefully since it can easily over boil)<\/li>\n
        2. In a separate bowl combine eggs, sugar, cornstarch, whisk together until it forms a smooth paste.<\/li>\n
        3. When the milk reaches a boil, slowly temper into the egg mixture. Add the mixture back to the pot and return it to the stove on very low heat<\/li>\n
        4. Stir the mixture constantly until thickened.<\/li>\n
        5. add in vanilla and butter.<\/li>\n
        6. Transfer to a bowl and cover with cling film, ensure the film is touching the pastry cream on all exposed areas to prevent the cream from forming a skin.<\/li>\n
        7. Cool completely before using<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n

            3. Mix together until a thick paste is made.<\/li>\n
            4. Transfer to a piping bag and use to pipe crosses onto the buns, this mixture is best used when it is still warm.<\/li>\n<\/ol>\n
