The inaugural edition of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) is around the corner with a total of five teams taking part in this tournament. The league was scheduled to be held in August but was pushed to a further date due to COVID-19. On November 4, the government permitted to host the tournament in Sri Lanka. The health officials urged the organisers to host the event only at a single venue. After several discussions, the league is all set to commence in a couple of weeks with Colombo Kings taking on the Kandy Tuskers at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota.
