The 2022 Hero Caribbean Premier League is all set to be the 10th season of the CPL; the domestic Twenty20 cricket league played annually in the West Indies.

This year the CPLT20 will be the tenth season to be held in the Caribbean nation. The Caribbean Premier League is held every year and is a Twenty20 cricket tournament. It was founded by Cricket West Indies in 2013 and replaced the Caribbean Twenty20 as the premier Twenty20 competition in the region.

Presently, it is sponsored by Hero MotoCrop and therefore was named as the Hero CPL.

The CPL 2022 features six teams which will participate in it. These teams are:

  • Guyana Amazon Warriors
  • Barbados Royals
  • St Kitts & Nevis Patriots
  • Jamaica Tallawahs
  • Trinbago Knight Riders
  • Saint Lucia Kings

The tournament will commence on August 31, Wednesday and will end on September 30 this year. The matches are set to be played on the grounds of St Kitts, and Nevis, Saint Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago and the playoffs are scheduled to be hosted by Guyana.

The first match will be held on August 31 between the teams

Jamaica Tallawahs and St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in Basseterre, St Kitts.

The Hero Caribbean Premiere League (CPL) recently announced that Caribbean Airlines (CAL) would be its official airline partner. CAL is coming back as the tournament's official airline after an absence of two-year.

The CEO of CAL, Garvin Medera, stated that the company is delighted to be back in collaboration with the CPL. He said, "As the official airline of the Hero Caribbean Premier League 2022, Caribbean Airlines is pleased to re-unite the fans and officials for the biggest sports party of the region."
