Summary

  • The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has warned the England and Wales Cricket Board their planned new Twenty20 tournament won’t succeed as hoped if it clashes with the existing competition in the West Indies.
  • “We are a unique tournament,” said Hero CPL chief operating officer Pete Russell at the 2018 draft in London on Thursday.
  • “That’s the challenge the ECB have — if they clash with the CPL, which is likely, then how will they, as they say they want to, become the biggest T20 tournament in the world?
  • “I think it’s important that T20 leagues around the world understand actually it doesn’t make sense to be overlapping,” Russell said.
  • “There are too many T20 leagues so somewhere, somehow, we’ve all got to come together to work out our own windows.”
