SPL 2021: The controversy that broke out in Sri Lankan cricket is not taking its name to end. The Sri Lanka Cricket Board is going to take a very tough decision regarding the second season of the Sri Lanka Premier League. The second season of the Sri Lanka Premier League will be postponed. Sri Lanka Cricket can make an official announcement about this soon.
The second season of the LPL T20 tournament, which was to be held from July 30 to August 22 at the Mahinda Rajapakse International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota, can now be held in November-December. The initial reason for postponing the tournament is the unavailability of foreign players but there are other reasons as well.
According to the information revealed, three out of five teams of LPL will not participate in it, which took part in its first season last year. According to a Cricbuzz report, Sri Lanka Cricket and Innovative Production Group (IPG) had canceled the contracts of Colombo Kings, Dambulla Vikings and Jaffna Stallions and the approval of the new management is yet to be received. Sources said that three new management approvals are yet to be received from the International Cricket Council.
The first season was also postponed twice
Last year, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board had decided to start the Sri Lanka Premier League. Last year too, however, the league was hit by the coronavirus. The first season of the Sri Lanka Premier League was postponed twice due to the corona virus. However, in November 2020, the first season of the league was successfully organized.
But due to Corona, many players withdrew their names before the tournament started. The weak financial condition of the Sri Lanka Cricket Board is also creating hurdles in organizing the league. Not only this, the limited over series to be played between India and Sri Lanka this month has also been pushed forward due to Corona’s case in the Sri Lankan team.
