The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will be held entirely in St Kitts and Nevis this year, with all 33 games scheduled to take place on the twin islands beginning August 28th.

The tournament was held in a bio-secure bubble last year, and the CPL operations team will work closely with the tournament's medical advisors, local authorities, and the government of St. Kitts and Nevis to ensure the health and safety of all those participating in the tournament this year.

"Warner Park has been the scene of some of the most iconic matches in CPL history and the high-scoring ground will be an ideal venue for the tournament, and fans can expect explosive cricket," the CPL organisers said.

"From Chris Gayle's brilliant hundred against the Jamaica Tallawahs in 2019 to Andre Russell's explosive century against the Trinbago Knight Riders in 2016, Warner Park has had some classic individual performances. There have also been some amazing matches, not least the game that went to a super-over finish between the St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots and the Knight Riders in 2019."

This year's tournament holds extra significance as it is taking place less than 45 days before the ICC T20 World Cup in India. West Indian and overseas players will look to use this opportunity to push for the selection of their national squads.
