A release from Digicel said: âDigicel is delighted to confirm that these negotiations have been successful and that arrangements have been put in place to allow for the Series to continue for at least the next 3 years. As such, the match scheduled between the West Indies and England on the 1st November, 2008, will now proceed.
Digicel has at all times supported the Stanford initiative, and from the outset sought a negotiated compromise with the relevant parties. Following the ruling made by the Arbitrator that the WICB had breached its Sponsorship Agreement with Digicel, Digicel immediately commenced negotiations with Stanford Cricket.
In successfully concluding its negotiations with Stanford Cricket today, Digicel has sought to keep the best interests of cricket in the West Indies at the forefront. Digicel is a huge supporter of cricket across the Caribbean region and is proud of the contribution that it has made and will continue to make.
Digicel looks forward to an exciting spectacle of cricket in Antigua and wishes the very best of luck to the West Indies players against the English Cricket Team!â
