Sri Lanka Cricket gets green light to complete U23 tournament

Cricket is back on track following the emergence of the new COVID-19 cluster, after Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) yesterday got the green light to complete the Major Youth Under-23 semi-finals and final.

The tournament was halted on 7 October, the day the semi-finals were to be played, following the current COVID-19 outbreak.

“We got the okay yesterday to finish the Under-23 tournament, so we are playing the two semi-finals on 27 October and the final on 29 October,” said SLC Tournament Committee Chairman Bandula Dissanayake.

“The venue for the Lankan CC and Colts semi-final game remains the same at the NCC grounds, but the other semi-final between SSC and Badureliya CC has been shifted to the P. Sara Oval from the CCC as the CCC ground is under construction. The final will take place on 29 October at SSC,” he said.
