This year the league started in May with a Ballorama but matches officially started in June. The KPL is similar to the famous T20 Cricket Tournaments as each team is giving 20 overs of play. Games are only played on the weekend and although the league is sort of reserved to players from the Carib Territory (Atkinson to Siniku), each team is eligible to have a maximum of two outside players. It’s only set up this way to promote, build and encourage athletes of the Carib Territory to stay focus and continue developing their skills in cricket.
