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.
