SLC to conduct inaugural T-10 tournament in December

At a meeting held at the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) headquarters yesterday, the executive committee unanimously approved to conduct the inaugural T-10 cricket tournament in December this year.

Eight teams are scheduled to take part in the tournament which is to be played in two venues. The names of teams and the venues are yet to be finalized.

After the conclusion of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) in November, all players who participate will be free without any further engagement and as a result, SLC opted to use this time frame to give these players a further opportunity to get into action, which will be conducive for their future tours.

SLC has decided to have six overseas players in a squad, and the tournament will be conducted on par with International T-20 standards.This is going to be the second event after the LPL. The LPL got postponed on several occasions due to the outbreak of Covid-19, which delayed health authorities granting permission. The other key factor for the delay of the tournament was the closure of the airport, which deprived the foreign players, match officials and other foreign stakeholders presence here.(AN)
