CPL 2020 LIVE : CPL 2020 to start first match at the same time as IPL 2020

The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) this year is starting its first game at 7.30PM as the season starts in UAE on 19th Sep. And now surprisingly Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2020) has also decided to start their first game at the same time i.e 7.30PM IST to cater to the Indian Prime Time for the television viewership. 
This means CPL 2020 which is starting from 18th August will start its first match at 10AM local Trinidad time which is quite unusual for any T20 game world over. It is norm with the T20 leagues world over to organize and schedule games in the evening so that the fans can come to stadiums and enjoy the games. But during these Covid times as the fans entry in the stadiums is not being allowed, organizers decided to start few games at India prime time.   
 
“This is done primarily to cater to the biggest cricket market of the world i.e India. Also as this time CPL will be played behind closed doors, we decided to experiment with the timings”, informed one of the key personnel of CPL. 
 
It is worth noting that 15 of the 30 league games are scheduled to start at 7.30PM IST (10 am Trinidad time). The timings for the semi-finals and finals of the CPL are yet to be decided.
