Officials of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) on Monday said that there are now changes to the schedule of the tournament as of yet, despite the coronavirus pandemic that has swept the sports fraternity and caused mass cancellations across the globe.

"CPL has been in constant communication with our medical advisors in recent weeks, as well as speaking with Cricket West Indies about the current situation with regard to cricket around the world, and at present there has been no discussion about moving the event," said a statement issued on Monday.

“CPL believes it is too early to make such a decision, but this is an evolving situation and we are carefully watching how events unfold in the Caribbean and around the world.” 

Launched in 2013, this year’s six-team CPL is scheduled to be played from August 19 to September 26. 

Meanwhile, the lucrative Indian Premier League has been postponed till April 15, while England has postponed their Test series in Sri Lanka.
