2022 Lanka Premier League


2022 Lanka Premier League - 11icBlog2

The Lanka Premier League has returned with its third season, which will begin on December 6, following considerable discussion and consideration. Due to Sri Lanka's ongoing political and economic crises, the five-team tournament, which was originally slated to take place in August of this year, has been postponed.


The organizers are hopeful that the third tournament would follow the success of the prior two, giving fans the much-needed respite they need after a trying year. The LPL schedule states that the final between Jaffna Kings and Galle Gladiators from the previous season will be reenacted for the fans.


The upcoming competition, which will feature five teams competing for the top prize, will take place in three different locations. During the group stages of the competition, a double round-robin format will be used. The final set will be played on December 23 in Colombo. Jaffna Kings, the defending LPL champions, have dominated the competition and will be motivated to claim the top spot this time around.


However, the other competitors, especially Thishara Parera's Kings' match day 1 opponents Galle Gladiators, will pose a serious challenge. The Jaffna Kings' tenaciousness denied the Gladiators the opportunity to win the competition on two separate occasions.


Here the the teams and their squads who will play for the 3rd season of Lanka Premier League !


TEAM SQUADS


The player draft took place on July 5, 2022, however as the tournament's start date was moved from August to December, significant adjustments to the teams' composition were made afterwards.


Due to their demanding overseas travel plans and the 2022–2023 Big Bash League season, English and Australian players later withdrew from the competition.


However, the majority of the locally signed players were kept by their individual organizations, and ever since the tournament schedule changed, the franchises were free to choose new players without holding a draft. During the middle of the 2022 ICC Men's T20 World Cup, Danushka Gunathilaka engaged in scandalous sexual activity without consent in Australia and withdrew from the competition.
