The biggest party in sport is back. This time it’s bigger & better than ever. The music is loud, the colours even brighter and the cricket is just even better and the sixes a little more further and a little more muscular. If the Sixty T-10 tournament is something to go by, we are in for a cracker jacker of a tournament. And just like always, the CPL will again thrill us and keep us on the edge of our seats.
The tournament will be played from August 31 to September 30 where 34 T20’s will be played. The 6 teams will battle amongst each other to be crowned the ultimate Caribbean T20 Champions. The St Kitts & Nevis Patriots are the defending champions and the most successful team in the history of the competition.
There are a lot of things to look forward to in this edition of the CPL. There are a few new and exciting names who are playing in this competition for the first time and it will be interesting to see how they adjust to the conditions and how well they can play. Another thing that will excite the fans is that some of the big West Indian names like Dwayne Bravo, Nicholas Pooran etc have shifted from their previous franchises and this will make things even more fun and interesting as it changes the whole dynamic of the tournaments and the individual teams concerned.
Another very important thing is that this tournament will be the stepping stone to the upcoming T20 World Cup. So expect most players to pack some punch and play big and consistent innings in an attempt to secure a place in the World Cup squad and this definitely should spice up things a little more.
Let us look at the squad details of all the 6 teams in CPL 2022.
