The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has sent out a release stating that it is too early to make a call on the future of this year's edition.
Rumours has been circling that the popular tournament would be moved to December. However, this rumour has been dispelled by the organisers.
According to the release: "In light of recent media reports and as the effects of the COVID-19 virus impacts people around the world there has been some understandable speculation with regard to the upcoming CPL season which is scheduled to take place from August 19 to September 26 2020.
"CPL has been in constant communication with our medical advisors in recent weeks, as well as speaking with Cricket West Indies (CWI) about the current situation with regard to cricket around the world, and at present there has been no discussion about moving the event.
"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. At present the CPL team is planning for the tournament to take place as scheduled whilst also looking at alternative plans should they be needed.
"Our thoughts at this time are with the many CPL fans, players and staff from around the world who have been impacted by this crisis and we hope that they and their families stay safe and healthy."
With no one being able to state when this coronavirus pandemic will be over, the CPL still has time to make a call as far as its tournament is concerned.
However, if the pandemic is not under control and the stated opening date approaches, the organisers may have to push it back and if this happens it may well have to be played in December because in October, the International Cricket Council (ICC) World T20 in Australia is scheduled to unfold. Therefore, it depends on what decision the ICC makes concerning the World T20 as well.
