GROS ISLET, St Lucia − The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) and Cricket West Indies (CWI) have agreed on a time for the 2019 edition of the tournament. This year’s event will take place between August 21 and September 27. The opening round of matches will take place in Trinidad and Tobago and Guyana before returning to these two countries for the playoffs and finals once again.

Speaking about the window for the tournament, Pete Russell, COO of Hero CPL, said: “We are very pleased to be playing our tournament in August and September for the third successive year and we have now agreed that this will be the time of year that CPL takes place for the next five seasons. Fans now associate this time of year with Hero CPL and we have already started work on bringing the party to life in 2019. Having the best Caribbean cricketers and the world’s best overseas players is what our tournament is all about, and this window gives us that.”

Johnny Grave, CEO of CWI, said: “The Hero CPL has developed into one of the best and most exciting T20 competitions in the world and we look forward to hosting another successful tournament later this year.  We are pleased that we have been able to find a window in our Windies International calendar to ensure that all the best Caribbean cricketers can take part, as the tournament plays a crucial role in our preparations and planning for the T20 World Cup in 2020.” (PR)
