The Biggest Party in Sport is about to become even more fun for young fans and families as the HERO Caribbean Premier League (CPL) launches “Dizzy Cricket”, a new cricket challenge that will take place at selected CPL matches in the Caribbean and USA this summer from 29 June to 7 August. 

At these fixtures, three young fans (who must be under the age of 16) wearing their team’s colours will be chosen from the crowd to take part in the CPL “Dizzy Cricket” Challenge during the innings break. 


The competitors will need to spin around a cricket bat 10 times before attempting to strike a cricket ball from a tee while in a state of unsteadiness.  In each CPL host country, the person who achieves the longest distance in the challenge will win a trip for two (which must include either a parent/guardian) to the CPL Finals.


Jamaica Tallawahs opener Chadwick Walton and some of his local club team-mates were on hand to help demonstrate how the challenge works, with the normally prolific Walton failing to strike the ball on three attempts! Fans can check out the video of Chadwick and his friends attempting “Dizzy Cricket” HERE.


Commenting at the launch of the CPL “Dizzy Cricket” Challenge, James Wynne, Head of Marketing at CPL, said: “We are always looking for ways we can make the CPL experience even more fun and engaging for fans and families and this is just one of a number of initiatives we’ll be rolling out to enhance the spectator experience at CPL games. 


“We have the best T20 cricketers in the world performing in the fourth staging of CPL, which will no doubt be an inspiration to the next generation of cricketers.  While the star players will bring the inspiration, CPL wants to make sure we bring the fun!”
