The theme song for the SKYEXCH 61XTY tournament has been released ahead of the first running of the new 10-over (60 ball) cricket tournament, which gets underway on Aug. 24 in St. Kitts and Nevis.
The song is performed by Naomi Cowan, winner of the Jamaica Reggae Industry’s breakthrough artiste of the year 2018 and  2019.
Cowan co-wrote and co-produced the song with Skorch Bunit and Cool Blaze under her independent label, 7th C Records.
A Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) media release last week said, “Cowan has seen her profile grow rapidly around the world over recent years with her song Paradise Plum getting global plaudits and radio play.”
The 6IXTY will see six men’s teams and three women’s teams compete for their respective versions of the Universe Boss Trophy as the unique cricketing carnival launches in 2022.
The trophy is named after T20 star Chris Gayle.
Cowan said, “I’ve always believed that the Caribbean has given the world the best in music and sport for many years.”
