Caribbean Premier League – Everything You Should Know
The Caribbean hosts an annual Twenty20 cricket competition known as the Caribbean Premier League (abbreviated CPL or CPLT20). It was established by Cricket West Indies in 2013 to take the position of the Caribbean Twenty20 as the region’s top Twenty20 tournament. Hero MotoCorp is presently its sponsor, and as a result, the Hero CPL is its official moniker. The Jamaica Tallawahs won the inaugural event after defeating the Guyana Amazon Warriors in the championship game. CPL was founded in 2013. Almost all cricket boards outside of India started their own T20 competitions after the IPL’s popularity. The CPL is Cricket West Indies’ recognized T20 competition. Since 2013, it has happened every single year.

The CPL 2022 will follow the same format as the IPL. In the league stage, each side faces the other twice. The CPL playoffs will be open to the top four clubs in the standings. The top two teams in the playoffs will face off in Qualifier 1, while the third and fourth-placed teams will square off in Eliminator. While the loser will compete against the winner of the Eliminator in Qualifier 2, the victor of Qualifier 1 advances to the final. The team that prevails in the final between the winners of Qualifier 2 and Qualifier 1 will be crowned the CPL 2022 champions.
