The 2021 Caribbean Premier League is set to take place from the 28th of August to the 19th of September. The 2021 Draft had already been set and already happened on the 28th of May. The program was aired live on YouTube from 6.30 PM IST. Last season, the Trinbago Knight Riders managed to win the championship scoring all the matches and knockout games.
Although the Trinbago Knight Riders traded their all-rounder called Dwayne Bravo to St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots, they managed to sign Denesh Ramdin. The batsman is almost a 100% replacement for Dwayne. There have been a few signings to the team ahead of the 2021 Caribbean Premier League Draft. As the Barbados Tridents signed the fast bowler Mohammad Amir, the Guyana Amazon Warriors managed to get the services of all-rounder Shoaib Malik from Pakistan.
Trinbago Knight Riders will have the leg-spinner from Nepal, Sandeep Lamichanne, during the 2021 CPL. On the other hand, St. Lucia Zouks will have to release their pro, Daren Sammy. Sammy has now become the mentor and brand ambassador of the franchise. Major decisions were made ahead of the 2021 CPL Draft. Most renowned players like Tim Seifert, Rashid Khan, Chris Green, Mohammad Nabi, and Scott Kuggeleijin are among those who lost their contracts.
