This year’s Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) will have playoff matches to be held in Guyana for the first time.

The matches, which will see the top four teams from group stages battle it out, will take place at the Providence Stadium from Sept. 11 and Sept. 12.

There will be seven Hero CPL matches in Guyana this year, including five group games also taking place at Providence.

The Guyana Amazon Warriors have made the playoffs stages of the Hero CPL every season and will be looking to make it into the latter stages for a sixth successive season when the match gets underway against last year’s losing finalist, St. Kitts & Nevis Patriots.

Speaking about the historic Hero CPL Playoffs coming to Guyana, Hero CPL’s CEO, Pete Russell said, “we have always been blessed with fantastic support in Guyana where the passion for cricket amongst the local population is second to none.”

Minister of State Joseph Harmon commenting on the playoffs said cricket is such a huge part of Guyana’s culture, which has attracted huge crowds and amazing support.
