Tom Moody, CPL’s Director of International Cricket, said: “After healthy discussion and debate the commentators have finalised what they believe is a power packed all-star XI from Hero CPL 2020. 

With a tournament dominated by world-class spin there was an abundance of riches, Imran Tahir again proved a challenge to all who came his way. Kieron Pollard’s all-round skills again brought some eye-catching performances, it was an easy decision to make him the captain after a flawless league stage.

The final of this year’s tournament will take place today, Thursday 10 September, at 10am Eastern Caribbean Time at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy.

The two competing teams will be Trinbago Knight Riders and St Lucia Zouks.
