Sri Lanka Cricket to Host LPL 2022 Despite Economic Crisis
Sri Lanka is going through a crisis in the economic crisis. Despite this, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has decided to host the Sri Lanka Premier League LPL 2022. The matter has been confirmed by SLC President Shammi Silva.
The third edition of the LPL will start on July 31 this year, an SLC said in a statement on Friday (May 10). The five-team event will end on August 21.
A total of 24 matches will be played in this five-team tournament. The matches of the tournament will be held in Colombo and Hambantota.
Concerns were raised over whether the third edition of the Sri Lankan LPL, which is facing political and economic problems, would be held. Overcoming that fear, the SLC has announced that the third edition of the tournament will be held on time.
In a statement issued by Sri Lanka Cricket, President Shammi Silva said, “I am delighted to announce that the third edition will be held on time. Even if the Global Twenty20 tournament is held at the same time, it will not clash with it. ”
Although the schedule of the tournament has been announced, it has not been announced yet when the LPL players’ drafts will be held. However, details about this will be announced soon.
