The six teams with complete squads for the upcoming Hero Caribbean Premier League 2021 have been announced. The squads are arranged to feature all of the fantastic cricket champions across the Caribbean and some of the names in the international teams. All of the matches of the Caribbean Premier League 2021 will be played from the 28th of August to the 18th of September. The tournament is set to take place in St. Kitts and Nevis at Warner Park.
In 2020, the Caribbean Premier League was played in Trinidad and Tobago at the Queen’s Park Oval and Brian Lara Stadium. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 games were not witnessed by a live audience, but this year will change. St. Kitts and the Nevis government have considered the fans’ desires and will allow them into the stadium. However, the tickets to the match will only be sold 50%. In addition, all the patrons have to be vaccinated with the Covid-19 vaccine.
In this year’s tournament, there have been many changes were Dwayne Bravo and Chris Gayle have teamed up for the hosting team, that is, St. Kitts and Nevis Patrons. On the other hand, Keemo Paul has moved to join St. Licia Zouks. In addition, Oshane Thomas will represent the Barbados Tridents.
