5th edition of Lanka Premier League to kick off on July 1

Colombo, Feb 16: The fifth edition of the highly anticipated Lanka Premier League (LPL) is set to be held from July 1 to July 31 this year, the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board announced on Friday.

However, the scheduling overlap with Major League Cricket (MLC) and The Hundred poses a potential challenge for LPL 2024. With the MLC’s second season commencing on July 4 and The Hundred slated to run from July 23 to August 18, the LPL faces the daunting task of attracting top-tier international talent amid rival leagues vying for player participation.

Despite facing a similar scheduling clash last year, which impacted its ability to secure foreign players, the LPL has managed to captivate local audiences with its thrilling cricketing action.
