Caribbean Premier League announce 2020 fixtures

Trinbago and Guyana to play opener

Andre Russell celebrates a wicket for West Indies

The fixtures for this year's Caribbean Premier League have been finalised.

The tournament will be played across 33 matches at two stadiums. This is fewer fixtures and venues than previous editions of the CPL, as a preventative measure against the spread of the coronavirus.

The Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad has been allocated 23 matches, including the semi-finals and final. The Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain will host the other 10.

The 2020 CPL will start on 18 August. The three-time champions Trinbago Knight Riders and five-times runners-up Guyana Amazon Warriors will contest the tournament opener.

The day's first match starts at 10:00 local time (20:30 IST, same day). The second match starts at 17:30 local time (04:00, next day).

“This year will be a different CPL, but the standard will be higher than ever. We have seen the appetite for live sport since it has returned after a prolonged absence, and the interest in CPL will be higher than ever with it being the first franchise T20 tournament to return,” said CPL chief executive officer Damien O’Donohoe.

CPL chief operating officer Pete Russell added: “We would like to express our gratitude to the government of Trinidad and Tobago for helping us to put on this tournament in such difficult circumstances. We are delighted that we are able to deliver a tournament that is ensuring the safety of the public and the players and that will be of such a high standard.”

The Barbados Tridents are the reigning CPL champions, having beaten Guyana in the 2019 final.
