CPL 2021: Caribbean Premier League to kick off from August 28

Published on

The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 will get off the blocks from August 28 and will stretch up to September 19. All the scheduled 33 matches will take place at Warner Park in St Kitts & Nevis. This follows after the successful hosting of CPL 2020 at only one place in Trinidad & Tobago amidst the pandemic.

Pete Russell, Hero CPL’s Chief Operating Officer, said “It is really exciting to have the tournament window for 2021 confirmed and I would like to thank St Kitts & Nevis government for agreeing to host this year’s event.”

“We would also like to extend our thanks to Cricket West Indies for helping us create this window in a busy summer of cricket for them. We are looking forward to once again successfully staging the Hero CPL in 2021,” an excited Russel added.

In what has been a partial lockdown since the last year all over the globe, the fans are left with no option but to enjoy games of cricket from the comfort of their own homes. As a result of which, the CPL T20 tournament recorded a combined viewership of 523 million, an increase of 67% from 2019.

Gradually, CPL is becoming one of the most followed franchise-based T20 leagues in the world. It is only the second league after the Indian Premier League (IPL) that has been able to record the most number of views in 2020, beating the likes of Australia’s Big Bash League (BBL) and Pakistan Super League (PSL).

List of all Leagues with the number of viewers in the 2020 edition:

IPL 2020: 400 Billion

CPL 2020: 523 Million

CPL 2021: Can Trinbago Knight Riders do it for the fifth time?

Arguably, Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) is the most successful franchise in the history of CPL so far. They have already engraved their name four times on the trophy. The 2020 season was a testimony to the dominance the franchise commands over all the other teams.

TKR remained unbeaten in the 12 games they played en route to clinching the championship

Ahead of CPL 2021, the TKR franchise announced its retention list. They have retained as many as 13 players and most of them are the big names of world cricket.

Looking at the squad, there might hardly be any doubts over their chances of defending the title successfully. The only notable extraction from the squad is Dwayne Bravo, who has moved to St Kitts & Nevis Patriots (SKNP).

Retention List: Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo, Lendl Simmons, Khary Pierre, Sikandar Raza, Anderson Phillip, Denesh Ramdin, Tion Webster, Akeal Hosein, Jayden Seales, Ali Khan.
