• CPL holding off on delaying 2020 event

    The Caribbean Premier League says it is too early to make a decision regarding its Twenty20 cricket amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    Officials are holding off on changing plans at this stage.

    ‘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,’ a statement issued Monday read.

    ‘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.’

    The event is due to start on 19 August and end on 26 September with the Barbados Tridents the reigning champions.

    The IPL has been shifted to start on 15 April while England’s tour of¬† Sri Lanka was postponed.

    The ECB has halted professional cricket until 28 May.
