Trinadad and Tobago has been selected as one of the hosts for the Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) T20 tournament.
A CPL media release last week said there will be eight matches played in Trinidad during Sept. 12-18, with home team Trinbago Knight Riders taking part in four of those matches.
The matches are expected to be played at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain and the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in South Trinidad.
This year’s CPL runs from Aug. 30 to Sept. 30.
The 2020 CPL was hosted solely in Trinidad, without fans, owing to the pandemic. The tournament shifted to St. Kitts and Nevis the following year, with only vaccinated fans allowed.
CPL said, “With restrictions now being relaxed in T&T, the unique energy and excitement of cricket fans will come alive at all the matches, bringing a return to the fantastic atmosphere the tournament has missed over the previous two years.”
Since April 4, fans have been allowed to attend sporting events with no restrictions.
Minister of Sports, Shamfa Cudjoe said: “The Government of T&T is excited to partner with the Hero Caribbean Premier League and welcomes back the Biggest Party in Sport to the home of Carnival, as we host the 2022 edition of the CPL.”
