- BY BIPIN DANI

Sopeningri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is considerin­g gates for fans for the forthcomin­g Lanka Premier League (LPL) matches, according to Prof. Arjuna de Silva, the chairman of SLC’S medical unit.

“We may allow 25% of spectators to watch the LPL matches with a condition that they are fully vaccinated,” he said.

The second edition of the LPL, Sri Lanka’s biggest domestic T20 tournament, will run from December 4 to 23.

“The tournament is still more than two months away and we are assessing the situation and will then seek the country’s health ministry approval for fans’ entry.” “This will be a sort of an incentive for people to get the required doses of vaccinatio­n.

Young fans in the age group between 20-30 years are still concerned (about taking the vaccine) and this opportunit­y (entry at the stadium) will force them to be vaccinated,” de Silva added.
