The CPL is scheduled to commence at 7:45 pm today at Trinidad and Tobago.
The first match of the tournament would be between Sandeep’s team Jamaica Tallawah and Saint Lucia.

Sandeep reached Trinidad and Tobago on a chartered flight of Korean Air on July 30 to play CPL. He underwent two PCR tests for coronavirus infection and tested negative.
All the 33 matches of the tournament will be played in front of empty stands amid the pandemic to ensure the players’ safety.
