Gros Islet (St Lucia.): The organisers of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) are keen on going ahead with the planned August 19 start but have also kept other options open due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The next edition of the CPL T20 event will is scheduled to take place from August 19 to September 26.

 

"CPL has been in constant communication with our medical advisors in recent weeks, as well as speaking with Cricket West Indies about the current situation with regard to cricket around the world, and at present there has been no discussion about moving the event," the CPL said in a statement.

There have been coronavirus cases in the West Indies as well but the situation here at present is far better than in the European countries.

"CPL believes it is too early to make such a decision, but this is an evolving situation and we are carefully watching how events unfold in the Caribbean and around the world.

"At present the CPL teams are planning for the tournament to take place as scheduled while also looking at alternative plans should they be needed."
