CWI changes the schedule of Caribbean Premier League 2021 on BCCI’s request

The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) 2021 was scheduled to begin on August 28, with the final set to be played on September 19. However, now the schedule has been changed slightly.

According to a report in Cricbuzz, the Cricket West Indies (CWI) has agreed upon a request made by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) in order to make sure that CPL and Indian Premier League (IPL) do not clash with each other.

The fourteenth season of the cash-rich league was postponed due to a bio-bubble breach among IPL franchises. In the Special General Meeting (SGM) held on May 29, the apex Indian board had revealed that the remaining matches of IPL 2021 would start from September 19 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

However, as per the original schedule of CPL, the final of the Caribbean league was set to be played on September 19 as well. This was the prime reason why BCCI had made a request to CWI to re-arrange the schedule of CPL 2021.

The report further added that CPL now will take place from August 25 to September 15, empowering the IPL to resume the uncompleted 2021 season from September 19.

The new schedule was settled by the BCCI and CPL authorities after Jay Shah had a conversation with CPL COO Pete Russell.

“CWI is doing our best to help facilitate a smooth transition from CPL to IPL, without a conflicting overlap,” Ricky Skerritt, the president of CWI, told Cricbuzz.

All 33 games of CPL 2021 will take place at Warner Park in St Kitts. Only 50% of the spectators at the 8000-seat venue would be allowed after submitting their vaccination proofs.

From Andre Russell’s remarkable century against the Trinbago Knight Riders in 2016 to Chris Gayle’s dazzling hundred versus Jamaica Tallawahs in 2019, Warner Park has witnessed some of the most iconic moments in CPL history, and it is ready to host the full event again.

How will ICC use reserve day after rain washes out Day 1 of WTC final? Here is the answer

How will ICC use reserve day after rain washes out Day 1 of WTC final? Here is the answer

The much-awaited World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand hit a massive rain blockade. The entire opening day at the Rose Bowl in Southampton was washed out without a ball being bowled on Friday.

There was no rain at the venue since 5:30 pm IST, but the match officials, after the inspection, decided to call off the play at 7:20 pm IST. Now the question that arises is how will the International Cricket Council (ICC) compensate for the loss of time after the first day has been washed out.

If the rain stays away for the next five days, then fans need not to worry at all as in this case, not even a single over of play will be lost since there is already a reserve day (June 23) to make up for any loss of time in the match.

“The Reserve Day has been scheduled to ensure five full days of play, and it will only be used if lost playing time cannot be recovered through the normal provisions of making up lost time each day,” the ICC had said in an official release.

In fact, the reserve day has officially come into effect with half an hour delay into the second session, i.e. 6:40 pm IST. Now, the two and half hours of play will be made up for the next five days, which means that each day will begin 30 minutes early.

However, in case a result is not achieved even after the extra 30 minutes every day and the full reserve day, then both India and New Zealand will share the WTC title.

“There will be no additional day’s play if a positive result is not achieved after five full days of play, and the match will be declared a draw in such a scenario,” the ICC had said while announcing the playing conditions.
