LPL takes off today

After much consternation and deliberation Sri Lanka’s inaugural T20 tournament with international players – the Lanka Premier League (LPL) – is set to take off at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium at 3.30 pm today sans all the fanfare due to the current pandemic that requires strict health guidelines be adhered to.

The tournament will be declared open by Sports and Youth Minister Namal Rajapaksa who has played a big hand in ensuring the LPL became a reality.

The start of the tournament was postponed four times from its initial date of 28 August due to the pandemic, and that it is happening is largely due to the Sports Minister.
