No pan at CPL cricket

THE EDITOR: Can you imagine a Caribbean T20 cricket event televised around the world and the relevant authorities did not see it fit to have a pan round de neck steelband parade around the boundary with the tassa bands and masqueraders, not even once in five games?

There were jab jabs at the Caribbean Premier League games at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain but no pan. Who can explain this? Who is responsible for it? What possible logical excuse can be used for this? Money, lack of planning, prejudice or just plain oversight?

There was certainly no lack of tassa as is customary at cricket games now but again why no pan?

What do they expect the viewers out there to think? This is the land of steel pan and calypso?
