Basseterre, St Kitts, 7 October 2021 — The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) would like to congratulate the 2021 interns for the stellar efforts during this year’s tournament.
St Kitts & Nevis nationals Jade Johnson, Simone Mills and Rashid Stanley were part of the Hero CPL team throughout the 2021 event. All three interns became an integral part of the tournament in 2021 and were a fundamental part of the success of Hero CPL this year.
