The resumption of the SLC Major League Tier ‘A’ competition has been further postponed by Sri Lanka Cricket.
Sri Lanka Cricket was planning to recommence the stalled Major Club League Tournaments with effect from 14th July, with a few changes necessitated by the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, the amended tournament rules and structure need to be approved by the General Membership at an EGM before implementation in the planned resumption of the Tournaments. In order to facilitate the above, the Tournament Committee has decided to postpone the resumption of the Major Club League Tournament, originally scheduled for 14th July ’20, until further notice.
The 14-team Tier ‘A’ competition, 12-team Tier ‘B’ competition and all the other domestic tournaments were paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic since March.
The Tier ‘A’ competition was due to start on July 14th but the current developments mean that the domestic cricket resumption in the island will have to wait.
The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Tournament Committee have also decided to play this season’s Super Eight games in the Tier ‘A’ competition as three-day matches owing to the current situation, even though it is usually played as 4-day matches.
Currently, Colombo Cricket Club (CCC) leads the points table to with four outright wins.
