St Kitts and Nevis: St Kitts and Nevis Island to host 2021’s CPL- Caribbean Premier League, with all the 33 games, scheduled to take place on the smallest island of the Caribbean from August 28 onwards.
Last year the tournament was hosted by Trinidad and Tobago Caribbean Island. The CPL operation’s team would again be working closely with the tournament’s medical advisors, local agencies and with St. Kitts & Nevis government to make certain the safety and health of all the players and all those involved in the tournament.
