PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — The winners of this year's 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will walk away with a brand new trophy.

The sleek and modern design, which integrates the colourful and vibrant Hero CPL logo with a cutting-edge look was designed by Ryan McClean of Ryan McClean Silver and was officially unveiled on Monday at Queen's Park Oval.

Chief executive officer of the Hero CPL Damien O'Donohoe said he was especially pleased with the finished product.

“We just want to showcase our new trophy which we're very proud of. We had a top silversmith working on this for about six months and we think it's first class,” he said.

Speaking about the vision behind the trophy, McClean said: “I designed the trophy after spending time looking at the Hero CPL logo. I wanted to try and tie the two things together. The logo, just like Hero CPL, is dynamic and colourful, and I felt the trophy should mirror this. The swirls from the logo holding a cricket ball seemed a perfect fit to reflect what Hero CPL represents — the perfect synergy of carnival and cricket.”

Captain of the Trinbago Knight Riders Dwayne Bravo was also present at the unveiling and said he hoped to be the first to lift the new trophy.

“It's a pleasure for me to be standing here next to this nice trophy. Hopefully, I'll be the first captain to lift it again this year. CPL is a very good tournament. it's one of the most successful tournaments in the world — one of the most anticipated tournaments in the world,” Bravo said.

The tournament gets under way today at Queen's Park Oval when the Knight Riders take on the St Lucia Stars.
