Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

BCCI urging West Indies board to advance the start of CPL and avoid clash with remainder of IPL 2021 in UAE | Cricket News – Times of India


NEW DELHI: The BCCI is trying to convince Cricket West Indies (CWI) to advance the start of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) by a week or 10 days to ensure a seamless bubble-to-bubble transfer of players for the Indian Premier League’s resumption in the UAE come September.
Suspended midway into its 14th season owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, the BCCI on Saturday approved the resumption of the lucrative IPL in the UAE in the middle of September.
The CPL is scheduled to get underway from August 28 with the final to be played on September 19, while the remaining part of IPL is likely to be held from September 18 to October 10, not leaving the players with any time to settle down.
“We are in talks with Cricket West Indies. We are hoping that if CPL can be finished a few days in advance, it would help in bubble to bubble transfer of all players to Dubai and in time to complete the mandatory three-day quarantine,” a BCCI source, privy to the development, told PTI on Sunday.
If the BCCI and CWI fail to reach an agreement over dates, some of the biggest players could miss the initial few matches or may be the first half of the remainder of IPL 2021.

The big names involved in both the T20 leagues are Mumbai Indians’ five-time IPL-winning all-rounder Kieron Pollard, Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Nicholas Pooran, Fabien Allen, Keemo Paul, Sunil Narine and Trinidad and Tobago coach Brendon McCullum, who is also at the helm of affairs at Kolkata Knight Riders.
The upcoming edition will be the CPL’s ninth season and will feature some of the format’s biggest superstars from across the world.
The IPL’s resumption was approved during the BCCI’s Special General Meeting on Saturday, less than a month after the league was suspended because of Covid-19 cases in its bio-bubbles.
