The Hero Caribbean Premier T20 tournament will bowl off in Trinidad when the defending champions the Trinbago Knight Riders (TKR) comes up against the St. Kitts/Nevis Patriots at 6pm on September 4.
The venue for this match is still to be decided as General Secretary of Queen's Park Cricket Club Colin Murray said that negotiations are still underway as far as hosting the matches at the Mecca of local cricket.
Dwayne and Darren Bravo, Keiron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Colin Munro and Ali Khan, are all in the Trinbago Knight Riders' (TKR) team for the 2019 edition of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).
The list of 17 players was confirmed following today's draft in London.
Dwayne Bravo's retention to the team came as a surprise to many, after he posted on Tuesday that he would not be playing for the TKR this year.
"No TKR for me this season guys sorry but I have "de nuff" of the cussing. I need to enjoy my time now good luck TKR fans," Bravo had said via an Instagram post.
Captain of the Trinbago Knight Riders and three-time Caribbean Premier League winner, Dwayne Bravo, has announced that he will not be playing with the Trinbago Knight Riders this season.
Bravo made the announcement via his Instagram account on Tuesday, one day before the CPL draft takes place in London on Wednesday.
He wrote: "No TKR for me this season guys sorry but I have "de nuff" of the cussing. I need to enjoy my time now good luck TKR fans."
His message came under a video post also on Instagram, in which he raised questions about where he would play.
The final list of players who have made themselves available for the 2019 Hero Caribbean Premier League has been sent to teams ahead of the draft which will take place in London on 22 May 2019.
The number of players that have put their names forward for the draft has increased yet again in 2019, as has the number of countries from which the overseas players are from.
Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says he hopes that the door to change has opened with the change of leadership in West Indies cricket.
Ricky Skerritt defeated former president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Dave Cameron 8-4 in Sunday's election.
Dr Rowley issued the following statement on Monday:
"I am pleased to hope that a door to far-reaching progressive change is now open.
This holds out the prospect for the effecting of the much-needed restructuring of the management of the regional game with some sense of purpose and urgency.
