Defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders to face Guyana Amazon Warriors in CPL 2021 opener

News

The tournament will be played entirely in a double-header format, with two triple-headers before the semi-finals

The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will be held between August 26 and September 15, with all 33 games to be played at Warner Park in St Kitts and Nevis, Cricket West Indies (CWI) has confirmed. Last month, ESPNcricinfo had reported that CWI and the BCCI had reached an agreement for these dates following discussions about a potential clash with the second half of the IPL in September, and the consequent unavailability of West Indies’ players in the IPL, as well as staff and franchise owners who are involved in both tournaments.

The CPL was originally scheduled to start on August 28, and end on September 19, but that changed after the BCCI began talks with CWI and the CPL, immediately after it identified the September-October window for wrapping up the remainder of the postponed 2021 IPL.
