COLOMBO: Sri Lanka will host the Sri Lanka Premier League in August in an attempt to emulate the success of the highly popular IPL, the island’s cricket authorities announced yesterday. The league will be played in Colombo and Pallekele from August 10 to 31 and will feature yet-to-be named world players, the board said in a statement. The 24-match tournament will take place a few weeks before the World Twenty20 opens in Sri Lanka on September 18.
