The league tournament is set to take place with more safety procedures. To avoid the virus transmission among the players, everyone will be tested for COVID-19 twice before departure and arrival in Trinidad and Tobago.

"All teams and officials will be housed in one hotel and everyone will be subject to strict quarantine protocols for the first two weeks they are in the country. Everyone travelling from overseas will be tested for COVID-19, before departure and then again on arrival in Trinidad," CPL said in the statement.

"Teams and officials will be put into 'households' where social distancing will need to be in a place. There will be smaller clusters within each household where these measures can be relaxed. However, if any member of this cluster display signs of COVID-19 at any time during the tournament all members of that cluster will be expected to self-isolate for a period of 14 days from the time that a member of that cohort first shows symptoms," said CPL in the statement.

"All members of the CPL party will be subject to regular temperature checks and will be re-tested for the virus throughout their stay in Trinidad and again before departure."

The matches will be played at closed doors with the severe health restrictions and strict guidelines in place for the teams and officials.

The CPL 2020 will feature Caribbean players as well as overseas players like Rashid Khan, Chris Lynn, Carlos Brathwaite, Dwayne Bravo, Alex Hales and Kieron Pollard.

Trinidad and Tobago have recorded 133 COVID-19 cases so far, which is the least affected region.
