article imageCricket: Caribbean Premier League 2013 live

By Zed Dav     Jul 31, 2013 in Sports
The first edition of the Caribbean Premier League kick-started July 30 seeing six franchises start 21 matches leading to a knockout stage featuring two semi-finals and a final.
The Caribbean Premier League 2013 is the first season of the tournament, in which six franchises from the region feature in a round-robin cum knock-out format.
Earlier, the Caribbean T20 tournament was on similar lines but what has been changed is that it has been brought under a franchise-model instead of the regular island-versus-island competition.
Interestingly, the tournament has found many takers, as is evident by the sale of TV rights with many broadcasters buying it for viewers around the world. Caribbean Premier League 2013 can be watched live on TV across the world.
According to the Caribbean Premier League schedule, all six teams play every other team in the tournament once. Each side plays two other teams on two occasions, making it a total of 21 games in the group stage of the competition. The top four sides at the end of this league stage go through to the semi-final which is then followed by the final.
Trinidad & Tobago has usually been the best side in the tournaments preceding this one but it must be said their team has lost few of their star players this year. Mystery spinner Sunil Narine will turn up for Guyana while hard-hitting batsman Kieron Pollard is now a part of the Barbados side — even captaining them this season. Still, led by Dwayne Bravo, they are a force to reckon with and it will be interesting to see how they go about things.
The other teams in the Caribbean Premier League this season include Antigua, Barbados, St. Lucia, Guyana and Jamaica.
The Caribbean Premier League will have players from around the world taking part in the competition but the lack of Indian players in the competition takes the sheen off the tournament.
