2012 SLPL Schedule and Fixture

SLPL (Sri Lanka Premier League) which was expected to schedule in July 2011 is now going to take place in August 2012. The official announcement of 2012 SLPL was made by Sri Lanka Cricket on 14th May at a media conference. SLPL is the franchise-based Twenty20 domestic cricket competition in Sri Lanka. The inspiration of SLPL is the Indian Premier League. The reasons behind the delay of the SLPL 2011 are insufficient finances and unavailability of Indian players. On 5th May, a new deal has been signed by Sri Lanka Cricket with Somerset Entertainment Ventures to organize the tournament systematically.

2012 SLPL Schedule and Fixture

2012 SLPL will be held from 10th to 31st August just before the ICC World Twenty20. ICC World Twenty20 happens in Sri Lanka in September. It will include 24 matches that will be played at R. Premadasa stadium (Colombo) and Pallekele stadium (Kandy). Each and every match will be telecasted live. It will feature 7 provincial teams such as Basnahira XI (Western Zone), Ruhunu XI (Southern Zone), Uva XI (Uva Zone), Wayamba XI (North Western Zone), Nehenagira XI (Eastern Zone), Kandurata XI (Central Zone) and Uthura Xi (Nothern Zone). All the teams will include six overseas players (in which 4 must be in the playing eleven) and seven Sri Lankans players (at least one youngster under-21).

The captain of Basnahira Bears is TM Dilshan, Wayamba Wolves is Mahela Jayawardane, Ruhuna Rhinos is Sanath Jayasooriya, Kandurata Kites is K Sangakkara, Uva Unicorns is Chaminda Vaas, Uthura Oryxes is Daniel Vettoriain and Nagenahira Nagas is Sahid Afridi. The Sri Lanka Cricket is yet seeking sponsors for the teams and Mr. Upali Dharmadasa (chairman of SLC) confessed that tournament success is based on number of sponsors they find. As per him, business tycoons of Sri Lanka are already showing interest in 2012 SLPL tournament. The officials of SLC were sure about the involvement of Indian and Pakistani players in 2012 SLPL.
