Following discussions with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), the West Indies Cricket Board (CWI) and Caribbean Premier League(CPL) have tweaked the schedule for the upcoming season of the CPL. The tournament will now be played between August 26 and September 15.
Earlier, Cricket West Indies President, Ricky Skerritt, had confirmed that the BCCI and CPL are in talks to modify the CPL schedule to accommodate the second leg of the Indian Premier League.
“Both IPL and CPL are important to CWI, to our cricketers, and to fans. CWI’s role was to facilitate arrangements for the non-overlapping and smooth transition from one tournament to the next. Cricket administrators must collaborate if cricket is to survive the risks and costs of COVID-19,” Skerritt noted in an official release by CWI.
All 33 matches of the CPL 2021 will be played at Warner Park. The tournament will see 50% of the spectators in the stadium. However, all the spectators will need to produce a proof of vaccination.
“This year’s tournament will be played in St Kitts and Nevis, with all 33 matches taking place at Warner Park,” stated an official release.
Meanwhile, BCCI are also in talks with other boards to check on the availability of the overseas players. The IPL is set to be played in September-October, right before the T20 World Cup.
