Windies player misses flight and CPL too
|| Desk Report ||
West Indies all-rounder Fabien Allen has been ruled out of the upcoming Caribbean Premier League (CPL) after missing his flight from Jamaica to Barbados.
“Unfortunately, there was some confusion with his understanding of the flight details and he missed the flight. We explored all possibilities, but due to the pandemic and travel restrictions in Trinidad, the charter flight on Monday was the only way he could enter the country," ESPNCricinfo quoted Allen's agent as saying.
Allen, who was retained by St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in last month's draft for the CPL, was due to reach Barbados on an internal flight on August 3 before boarding the charter flight to Trinidad, but he was late to the airport and missed his flight.
On the other hand, the CPL is all set to become the first major cricket league to start amid the global pandemic novel coronavirus outbreak from August 18 while the final will be played on September 10.
The whole tournament will be played in Trinidad and Tobago across two stadiums but behind closed doors.
All the participants in the CPL are required to self-isolate for two weeks before they board their flights, and for two weeks upon arrival in Trinidad and Tobago as well.
