I received an email from Roy Singh on Sunday 16th November 2014 asking me to give him a call.
So I did.
You may remember Roy from our Canadian Premier League podcast not long back.
If you haven’t heard it, take a listen here. It will put this latest podcast into context. It was one of the more interesting episodes we have done.
Anyhow, back to my latest call with Roy.
In the call, Roy shares his frustrations with Cricket Canada, makes some accusations and reveals:
1) Cricket Canada have informed Roy that they have sold the Canadian T20 rights to a ‘Commercial Entity’ that is not him
2) Roy claims he has an MoU with the Pakistani team to play in his proposed Canadian Premier League.
3) Roy details his proposed commercial offer that he offered Cricket Canada.
4) He clearly lacks judgement by praising me on this article.
I emailed the General Manager of Cricket Canada, Mr Ingleton Liburd on that same Sunday asking for a chat with himself or the President, Mr Vimal Hardat, to discuss Roy Singh’s claims.
They did not respond to my email.
So, I present to you my phone call with Roy raw and unedited.
I make no comment on my personal conclusions about the situation at this time, but I do welcome yours in the comments section below.
The invitation is still open to Cricket Canada to have a chat with me.
As an aside, here is an article that appeared in the Caribbean Graphic on the same issue.
