Sri Lanka Premier League will be played from August 10 to 31. The tournament will feature seven provincial teams, and be played at two venues at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo and the Pallekele International Stadium.
Sri Lanka Cricket said, each team will be allowed a maximum of six overseas players in their squads and four in their playing XI. And also, it will be necessary for each team to field a local under-21 player in every match. The Sri Lanka Cricket will name icons, from among the national players, for each team shortly.
Sri Lanka Cricket had signed a new deal with Somerset Entertainment Ventures to hold the league on May 5, ESPNcricinfo had learned earlier. Initially, the Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) was supposed to kick off last year, with SLC’s then interim committee signing a five-year deal with Somerset Entertainment Ventures to organise the event.
