Trinbago Knight Riders win 4th CPL Title
The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has been growing into a very competitive T20 league since it started back in 2013. The next edition of the event will take place this August, and six teams will battle it out once more to take home the CPL trophy.
The dates for the 2020 edition of the tournament have been set between 18 August – 10 September 2020 across 2 venues. The tournament has been played at different times during the year since 2013, although this looks to be a good place in the schedule for it, and hopefully, it can stay here in the long term. All matches will be played behind closed doors.
We have already had the CPL draft for 2020, which proved to be an exciting affair. The big names have all been snapped up by the six teams, and we have huge international players ready to play, alongside many Caribbean natives. CPL 2020 schedule and squad players list are placed below.
