The inaugural edition of the Lanka Premier League, LPL 2020, will kick off with the first match between Colombo Kings and Kandy Tuskers at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota on Thursday, November 26.

LPL 2020 will see five franchises - Colombo Kings, Dambulla Viking, Galle Gladiators, Jaffna Stallions and Kandy Tuskers - battle it out against each other in 23 matches. However, severe questions have been raised over the tournament’s popularity, with a number of big names deciding to opt out.

Chris Gayle, Liam Plunkett and Sri Lankan legend Lasith Malinga are among those who have decided to back out of LPL 2020. Gayle and Plunkett were slated to represent Kandy Tuskers while Malinga was to turn out for the Galle Gladiators in LPL 2020.

A number of foreign cricketers though will be taking part in the Lanka Premier League (LPL 2020). As the tournament is set to kick-off, here’s a franchise-wise list of all non-Lankan players taking part in the T20 tournament.
