UVA T20 Premier League which marks the return of competitive cricket comprises 14 T20 games to be played between June 29 and July 5.

Bangladesh may have had to postpone their tour of Sri Lanka due to the ongoing severity of the Covid-19 pandemic but there is some good news coming out of the country over the last few days. As Sri Lanka plan the Lanka Premier League in August, which goes by the catchy abbreviation LPL, the cricket fans in the nation have something to look forward to.


Before LPL materializes, the UVA T20 Premier League is here to keep the fans entertained. Four teams, namely Monaragala Hornets, Unilions Mahiyanganaya, Badulla Sea Eagles and Wellawaya Vipers will clash against each other over a week for the UVA T20 Premier League Trophy. There will be a total of 14 T20 matches with two games to be played per day.

Four icon players who have apparently been signedfor the competition are Tilakratne Dilshan, Thilan Tushara, Farveez Maharoof and Ajantha Mendis. The four have been named the captains of their respective teams.

All the four teams will be part of six matches each on the first six days of the competition. The last day will consist of an Eliminator and the Grand Final. The 2nd and 3rd ranked teams will go up against each other in the Eliminator while the winner of the Eliminator will lock horns against the top-ranked team in the Grand Final.
