Inaugural edition of Lanka Premier 2020 is already started and thrilling contest and exciting matches has already increased the popularity of this Sri Lanka’s very own franchise cricket league.
Interestingly with all many top cricketers form many corners of the world participating in this tournament but still Sri Lankan local players are making their presence felt.
Good thing for Sri Lankan cricket with LPL 2020 is the development of young players under the guidance of foreign coaches and sharing dressing room with top international cricketers who have played in different parts of the world.
So far 6 Sri Lankan batsmen are featuring in top 10 scorers of LPL 2020 edition. Seasoned campaigners like NLTC Perera, BKG Mendis, MDKJ Perera made their bats to talk with upcoming talented players like MD Shanaka, MD Gunathilaka & WIA Fernando are also making good contributions for their team.
Despite good batting performances, no Sri Lankan upcoming talent had put their hands up in the bowling department which is a bit of concern as since retirement of Vaas, Murali and Herath it is the bowling attack in which Sri Lanka lacked potency.
Lanka Premier League have been in the limelight as it has been considered to provide an upward thrust to Sri Lankan cricket which is on the decline since last few years.
Hoping that I upcoming matches Sri Lankan local talent would come up with good show both with the bat and ball which will help in reviving of Sri Lankan cricket.
