CPL 2020: Squads, Schedule, News, Points Table, Match Prediction, Live Streaming, Stats, Start Date

Caribbean cricket's biggest carnival, CPL 2020 is just around the corner. With the IPL and T20 World Cup still waiting for their chances to get underway, the Caribbean's biggest cricketing carnival i.e. the fate of CPL T20 2020 also hangs in balance.

The global pandemic has already taken a toll on human lives which and sports which surely include cricket got affected heavily. ‘Postponement' and ‘Abandonment' are the two terms that have been associated with all sporting ties around the world in the past 3-4 months.

CPL 2020 Match Prediction

The Caribbean Premier League will witness its 8th edition in 2020 and the proclaimed dates for the tournament to commence is from 19th August to 26th September. However, with the COVID-19 still the biggest threat looming all over the world, there are speculations that the tournament might witness new dates.

The current situation is not favourable and playing in these adverse conditions means risking the lives of both spectators and players. The CPL authority is in constant communication with both West Indies Cricket Board and medical support staff, and at present, the tournament doesn't seem to get any new dates.

According to the current scenario, it is still too early to make such decisions and the governing bodies of the tournament are in no rush to take any call as of now.

Would you like to play a fantasy game where you can substitute some players during the match?

CPL 2020 Start Date 19 August
