“We will be having one more additional team that is Trincomalee…”- SLC

Having come through a tough and challenging inaugural My11Circle Lanka Premier League (LPL) successfully, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has promised that Season 2 of the LPL, which is scheduled to be held from 27 July to 18 August 2021, will be bigger and brighter with several international stars included.

This is what SLC has in mind for LPL Season 2;

“We will be having one more additional team that is Trincomalee and we will have the playing conditions changed by including the eliminator (like in the IPL). It is something that all the captains emphasised on. The only thing is that we had a stipulated time period to finish the first tournament because the Sri Lanka team was leaving for South Africa. That is why we shortened the tournament but still we played 23 matches. We are also thinking of playing the matches at three venues, but we still don’t know what role COVID-19 will play, we cannot predict the future,” said the LPL Tournament Director Ravin Wickramaratne.

“We expect more international stars to be playing in the tournament. If we have the player draft in February or March then the players will have ample time to look at their international calendar. This year we couldn’t do that and that is why several players opted out”, he added.

Also the Director Ravin Wickramaratne said that,  for next year there wouldn’t be any increase in the players’ fees.
