The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and Cricket West Indies (CWI) have agreed on a tournament window for the 2020 tournament. The next year’s tournament will take place from 19 August to 26 September 2020.
This window means that for the third year in a row, all West Indies contracted players will be available for the duration of the event. With top-class international stars who will also be in the Caribbean, fans can get to know the best talents in the cricket world.
This window also means that there will be no overlap with the new event The Hundred of the Cricket Board of England and Wales, which means that both tournaments will benefit from having the best possible players available.
Pete Russell, COO of Hero CPL, said of the tournament window: “We are very excited to be playing our tournament in August and September, a time or a year that is perfect for us and our fans. The foundation of our tournament is that we have the best cricketers in the Caribbean and the best players in the world overseas.
We may only be away from the 2019 tournament for a few days, but we are already planning for next year to ensure that we continue to see the phenomenal growth and economic impact CPL has experienced over the years. “
Johnny Grave, CEO of CWI, said: “The Hero CPL has become one of the best and most exciting T20 competitions in the world and we look forward to hosting another successful tournament next month. We are pleased to have found another window in our international calendar for the 2020 season, which shows that the best cricketers in the West Indies can participate as the tournament plays a crucial role in our preparations and planning for the ICC T20 World Cup in 2020. “
