The Caribbean Premier League is yet another tournament filled with lots of thrilling matches, excitement and many good t20 players. As the years passed, the tournament kept on progressing and got in some more experienced and great names of t20 cricket to make the league one of the best.
We are now heading towards the 5th edition of the CPL which is a couple of months, and we saw the draft of that tournament a few days which consisted of some big local names as well as international names. The league is full of entertainment and the inclusion of cricketers like Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy, Martin Guptill, Brendon McCullum certainly justifies that as these guys are known for their power hitting ability which is required in the T20 format. Not only these guys but many other amazing cricketers will surely live up to the expectations of their fans and will deliver consistent performances so we are surely in for a eye catching league.
Coming to the bowlers of this year’s CPL, they contain some very good wicket taking bowlers, most of the bowlers are local which is a good thing because they will be getting a chance to play with international players and prove themselves just like other countries do with their countries, involving more local players as this type of league’s main purpose is to bring out the hidden talent of your nation.
If we only look at Pakistani Players in the draft, I think the players have quite impressed the owners as many were picked for different teams. Players like Kamran Akmal who stunned everyone with his outstanding performance in the PSL will get another chance to show his talent in CPL. Imad Wasim is also a brilliant t20 player, very effective with the ball and quite handy with the bat he also made his presence felt last year courtesy astonishing performances. Not to forget the two senior players, Shoaib Malik and Wahab Riaz, good T20 players and also performed well in the recent Pakistan Super League.
Overall, CPL is all set to bring an action packed tournament for all the cricket fans again, adding more star players to the league makes it even better and hopefully this year’s tournament will be more successful than last year and all the fans get to see some good cricket.
