There are not many free days in between and all the games will be played in just under three weeks. This is a challenge for CPL players as they won’t get adequate rest in a packed home season. West Indies are currently playing a white-ball series against Australia comprising five T20Is and three ODIs that will end on July 24. The Pakistan tour kicks off three days later with a five-match T20I series followed by two Tests, scheduled to end on August 24.
