CPL can’t Fight Potential IPL Clash But Hopes BCCI Figures Out It’s Own Window


The chief operation officer of the Caribbean Premier League Pete Russell said that organiser would not want to clash with the IPL and hopes the BCCI figures out its own window for the IPL which has been indefinitely Postponed due to coronavirus pandemic.

If normalcy is return, then there is a possibility that the BCCI organises IPL in the month of September and October and might require to rescheduling the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup.

The CPL has scheduled to be held from August 19 to September 26 and there are chances of clash with IPL.

“We wouldn’t go up against it. While I know the BCCI is all-powerful in these things, there has to be some sensible consideration around what players and other leagues are doing,” Russell told ESPNcricinfo.

“I think IPL would want all the West Indian players to be playing in their tournament – it would”t make sense for them to play at the same time as CPL when a lot of their stars are playing with us. That would defeat the objective. I don’t think they need to do that, either. They can figure out their own window, for sure.”

The coronavirus cases in the Caribbean have not been as alarming as in the US and Europe with the death toll yet to reach double figures in the six countries that host the CPL.
