SLC confident of hosting T20 League

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) are optimistic that they could host the Lankan Premier League (LPL) Twenty20 Tournament in August despite the postponement of their home series against India and Bangladesh due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

SLC believe that they have a real chance of safely hosting the T20 League this year with a great amount of foreign involvement as the country has negotiated with the health crisis well.

In fact, SLC Chief Executive Officer Ashley de Silva has already written to other boards about the prospect of a T20 League while foreign players have also been approached.

The SLC is working on the theory that the LPL may feature five teams and could last a little over three weeks.

SLC is also hopeful of hosting the Asia Cup in September while efforts are on to get India over for three ODIs and as many T20Is and Bangladesh for three Tests.

An SLC official said that government approval had been granted not just for a potential LPL but also for the India, Bangladesh and Asia Cup tours.

Sri Lanka has also offered to host the high profile Indian Premier League (IPL) that has been postponed indefinitely. (CF)
