LPL player draft postponed
The player draft of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) franchise based T20 Cricket Tournament which was rescheduled for today has been postponed once again.
The decision was made due to the current health situation in the country, a media release from Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) revealed yesterday.
SLC said the draft has been rescheduled to October 19 but that it will also closely monitor the situation in the lead up to the new date.
The LPL itself has already been rescheduled multiple times and could face yet another postponement if the fresh outbreak of the COVID-19 cases escalates.
Meanwhile, an SLC official told the Daily Mirror that it would take a decision early next week regarding the tournament, after monitoring the situation.
