Cricket West Indies Press Release in March 2020:

In light of recent media reports and as the effects of the COVID-19 virus impacts people around the world there has been some understandable speculation with regard to the upcoming Caribbean Premier League (CPL) season which is scheduled to take place from 19 August to 26 September 2020.

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.

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

Our thoughts at this time are with the many CPL fans, players and staff from around the world who have been impacted by this crisis and we hope that they and their families stay safe and healthy.

Management Proposal for CPL 2020

On June 2020, CPL Management submitted a Proposal to the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago MR. Keith Rowley. The Proposal asked the permission from the PM to stage the entire Season in the country of Trinidad and Tobago.

The Proposal also stated that, it wanted to host the entire CPL 2020 on at Trinidad’s two main grounds. The Queen’s Park Oval and the Brian Lara Academy. Whereas, the matches will be played between 10am and 6pm Local Time on the same day. This will reduce the time duration of the event to 25 days instead of regular 39 days. The Proposal is yet pending and Keith Rowley have asked a formal approach from CPL Management.

CPL 2020 Partners

The Hero Caribbean Premier League singed a deal with Visa Inc Which is an american multinational financial services corporation and facilitates electronic funds transfers around the world. While signing this agreement, CPL Management stated that CPL will be “better with Visa” with cardholders getting a range of benefits when Visa is used to purchase their tickets for CPL matches.

CPL Television Viewership 2020

Year 2019 was a good year for the Caribbean Premier League as the organizers saw an increase in the viewership assuring the growth of the League. As per reports, The total combined Viewership of Broadcast and Digital reached a grand total of 312 Million. A 56% increase from the previous year.

In 2020, CPL is going to witness record viewership from TV and Streaming mediums. In addition, this season will also be streamed live on Facebook and Twitter. As per estimates, CPL viewership may reach to 400 Million users in 2020.

Saint Lucia Zouks

After down performing in the early seven seasons from 2012 to 2019, the previous owners sold Saint Lucia Stars to K.P.H. Dream Cricket Private Limited. An Indian Company with a good record of success on and off the field. Thus, Saint Lucia Stars were renamed by their new owners to Saint Lucia Zouks. Perhaps, this change of ownership will bring good experience to Saint Lucia Zouks.

In their first ever Season in CPL, Saint Lucia Zouks have declared Andy Flower as their new Head Coach. Former Zimbabwean Cricketer will be Coaching Saint Lucia Zouks in CPL 2020 Season. Apart from it, Darren Sammy is also named as the Captain of Saint Lucia Zouks in CPL 2020. He have been with his home team since CPL 2012.
