Sri Lanka Cricket has announced the adjusted schedule for the Lanka Premier League (LPL) which is set to commence on the 21st of November.
The tournament will have 23 matches; 20 group stage matches of double round-robin, 2 semifinals and a final which will be played over 25 days.
Hambantota Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium and Pallekele International Cricket Stadium will host all the matches as day and day/night games. Previously, Dambulla Cricket stadium was also mentioned as one of the hosts, but due to the prevailing restrictions as a result of COVID19, the organisers have decided to stick to only 2 venues in this edition of the LPL.
The player draft for the tournament was held on 19th October, with nearly all slots filled by the 5 franchises.
