Another entity with no regional presence is the title sponsor of a home tour? I get it, ya gotta take the sponsorship when you get it, but it still feels weird.

Yep, I guess not until the regional team and regional governing body starts to take the cricket seriously will we see titel sponsorship coming our way
Then again, perhaps their asking price might be summen out of what most companies here might be willing to pay.

Whatever happened to the once ubiquitous Digicel?

Don't tell me that just because some peeps insist on calling them DigiHell, they just packed up and left town.

It's cheaper and more economical for series to be sponsored and not by the kit sponsors.
cheaper for digicel and put extra money in WICB pockets
