The Lanka Premier League has been officially rescheduled to take place in December 2022.
The third season of the LPL was initially slated to be held this month, but the economic crisis engulfing the country had forced a postponement last month.
LPL tournament organiser Samantha Dodanwela told the media, “It’s my pleasure to announce that the LPL will be held from 6th to 23rd December.”
Meanwhile, no decision has been taken yet on a potential LPL re-draft.
As per Sri Lanka’s Future Tours Program, the tournament will likely be sandwiched between a home Test series against West Indies in November and an away ODI series against India in December-January.
The LPL is a five-team competition being held since 2020.
Jaffna Kings, formerly the Stallions, have been champions in the two previous seasons while Galle Gladiators have been runners-up in both those editions.
The other three teams are Colombo Stars, Kandy Falcons and Dambulla Giants – all three of whom have also gone through changes in ownership since the inaugural edition.
