St Kitts & Nevis player forced out of CPL for bubble breach

Following the receipt of some tragic news about a close friend, Mikyle Louis left the hotel bubble without permission

St Kitts & Nevis Patriots player Mikyle Louis has been forced to leave the 2021 Caribbean Premier League (CPL) following a breach of the tournament operating protocols and will take no further part in this year’s tournament. 

The CPL protocols for 2021 state, inter alia, the following: “The tournament bubble will be maintained for the entire duration of the tournament and no one from outside the bubble will be allowed in at any of the bubble locations. Conversely, no one from inside the bubble will be allowed out of the main bubble areas. Persons who break these rules will be expelled from the tournament – no exceptions.”

Speaking on the incident, Hero CPL’s Tournament Operations Director, Michael Hall said: “Following the receipt of some tragic news about a close friend, the player took the unfortunate and ill-advised decision to leave the hotel bubble without permission. While the league is sympathetic about the circumstances which led to the player’s decision, it cannot allow the integrity of its Covid-secure bubble to be compromised.” 

Currently, with three wins from three games, St Kitts and Nevis Patriots have found themselves at the top of the table.
