Caribbean Premier League (CPL), the domestic Twenty20 cricket league of the West Indies, is one of the biggest and oldest T20 competitions in the world. With the inaugural season being played in 2013, not a single season has failed to live up to the expectations of its fans.

Every season has entertained its spectators to the fullest. And therefore, it came as a big relief to its fans when the West Indies Cricket Board finally confirmed the hosting of the league amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The eighth season of the CPL is all set to begin on August 18 with Trinbago Knight Riders taking on Guyana Amazon Warriors. The tournament will take place across three weeks and the final is scheduled to be played on September 10.

Like most of the other sporting events happening around the world at the moment, CPL 20 will also be played behind closed doors and only two venues (both in Trinidad and Tobago) would be used for the tournament.

The Brian Lara Cricket Academy will host the first set of 10 matches from August 18 to August 23 before the action shifts to the Queen’s Park Oval for the next 10 games to be played between August 25-30.

The teams will then return to Brian Lara Cricket Academy again where the third and last set of games, including the playoffs and the final, will take place.

Here, in this article, let us take a look at some of the key stats of CPL T20.
