President of Cricket West Indies, Ricky Skerritt, has confirmed that CWI, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) engaged in talks for a tweaked CPL schedule to accommodate the second phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
In a recent interview Mr Skerritt noted:
“Both IPL and CPL are important to CWI, to our cricketers and to fans. CWI's role was to facilitate arrangements for a non-overlapping and smooth transition from one tournament to the next.
Cricket administrators must collaborate if cricket is to survive the risks and costs of Covid-19."
All 33 matches of the 2021 Hero CPL will be played at Warner Park with a cap of 50% capacity for vaccinated spectators.
