Abstract: Let $f$ be a normalised new form of weight $2$ for $\Gamma _{0} (N)$ over ${\mathbb{Q}}$ and $F$, its base change lift to $\mathbb{Q}(\sqrt {-3})$. A sufficient condition is given for the nonvanishing at the center of the critical strip of infinitely many cubic twists of the $L$-function of $F$. There is an algorithm to check the condition for any given form. The new form of level $11$ is used to illustrate our method.
