Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) initially planned to conduct the 2021 edition of the Lanka Premier League ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup. However, since quite a few foreign players were unavailable, the board decided to have a SLC T20 tournament featuring the local players only.
Dhananjaya de Silva will captain SLC Blues, Dasun Shanaka will lead SLC Grays, while Dinesh Chandimal and Ashan Priyanjan are the skippers of SLC Reds and SLC Greens, respectively.
The SLC fixture will feature 13 matches, including the final. All four teams will play six league games, two matches against each opponent. The top two teams will qualify for the summit clash, scheduled to take place on August 24.
Keeping the COVID-19 situation in mind, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have allotted all matches of the Sri Lanka Invitational T20 2021 to the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy. The venue will play host to all 12 league games as well as the grand finale.
There will be no live telecast of the Sri Lanka Invitational T20 2021 in India. Fans can live stream all games on the official YouTube channel of Sri Lanka Cricket.
