Lanka Premier League Moved to November

The inaugural season of the Lanka Premier League gets postponed to mid-November in order to implement more safety protocols. 

Originally, the inaugural season of the Lanka Premier League was supposed to be held from August 28 to September 20. However, Sri Lanka Cricket has best decided to postpone the league once again just to comply with the 14-day quarantine protocol that is being insisted by the local government. 

As per SLC vice president Ravin Wickramaratne, ‘We're not the experts, so we had to go with what the health ministry is telling us. There's a window from November 20th to December 12th, so that is what we are planning’. The reason as to why it is not possible to hold the tournament a bit earlier is because of the fact that the dates might clash with that of the IPL’s and it may not be good for the rating of the LPL. 

With the time frame for the LPL being extended, the five different franchises have more time to finalize their team lineups. Aside from that, the SLC will also have more time to finalize the sponsorships of the event.
