The CPL schedule for 2018 has been announced. The world of cricket is about to witness one of the biggest party in sports as the superstars from around the world will participate in the sixth edition of the CPL. The CPL Draft took place a week ago and a lot of big names have signed up for their respective teams.
The 6th edition of the CPL will kick off from the 6th of August and the final will be played on 16th of September. The tournament dates are extremely important for West Indies as during this period, the Caribbean boys will not be playing any international cricket and all of their mega stars will be playing for their CPL franchises without taking any off days.
