CARIBBEAN PREMIER LEAGUE T20

Caribbean Premier League or CPLT20 is a domestic West Indies cricket tournament offering a mix of cricket and Caribbean colors, very much like a carnival experience. It is an annual T20 cricket tournament which is held in the Caribbean. The league was established in 2013 and it is currently being sponsored by Hero MotoCorp. Thus the official name of the league now in 2020 is Hero CPL. Jamaica Tallawahs was the winner of the first edition of this tournament. They had defeated the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the final to win the trophy.

TEAMS

The tournament has six teams participating in it including Barbados Tridents, Guyana Amazon Warriors, Jamaica Tallawahs, St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, Trinbago Knight Riders, and St Lucia Zouks. During the inaugural edition of the tournament, there was another team named Antigua Hawksbills, located at the Leeward Islands. In 2015, it was announced that Antigua Hawksbills would not participate in the tournament any longer.

Each CPL2020 squad can only have 15 contracted players together with a maximum of 4 players under the age of 23 and 5 international players. Each team also has one local player and one from an international franchise.
