"The West Indies Cricket Board was delaying the signing of the MOU and we couldn't wait any longer so we approached Zimbabwe and they have agreed to play in the Twenty20 event," Nabi said.

The organiser put up a winners purse of 100,000 Canadian dollars for the event with 60,000 for the runners up.
