Hero CPL draft to take place on March 1 in London
The draft for the 2018 Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will take place on March 1 in London.
At the CPL draft, teams will select their lineups for the sixth edition of the tournament, which will take place from August 8 to September 16.
The Hero CPL will have the best cricketers taking part in the tournament, from around the world as well as from across the Caribbean.
The window for this year’s event means that there are no West Indies fixtures that clash with the Hero CPL so the very best West Indian players will be available for selection.
Speaking about the upcoming draft Damien O’Donohoe, CEO of Hero CPL, said: “Our draft is such an important date in the Hero CPL calendar. It is when we get to find out who will be coming to join the Biggest Party in Sport. We know that the quality of players that we have coming to this year’s tournament will generate a huge amount of excitement.
“While the Hero CPL is about bringing the carnival atmosphere to cricket, the quality of the sport on display is just as important. The world-class cricketers that will be selected on March 1 are what make the cricket at Hero CPL so special.”
