After an action-packed start at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy, CPL 2020 moves to Queen's Park Oval in Port of Spain this week. This venue has a rich history, having hosted some mega matches during the ICC World Cup in 2007.

Trinbago Knight Riders used Queen's Park Oval as their home ground for five CPL matches last year. The Trinidad and Tobago-based franchise has participated in 33 games at this venue, winning 22 of them. Jamaica Tallawahs also have a decent record here, with six wins in 10 matches.

Barbados Tridents and St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots have not enjoyed much success in Port of Spain. The defending champions of CPL 2020 have won only a single match in their eight outings, whereas the Patriots have one win in four fixtures.

With the Queen's Park Oval set to host the next few matches of CPL 2020, here are some vital records that fans need to know.
