COLOMBO: Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) confirmed on Thursday that a T20 tournament in Sri Lanka is in the offing, with the board stating that plans are also underway to resurrect the Sri Lankan Premier League later this year.

SLC, meanwhile, is looking at next month’s Nidahas Trophy as a testing ground of sorts for maximising Sri Lankan cricket’s international exposure, ahead of the launch of any domestic T20 league.

“We believe we have the best package, we’ve got the best formula, we’ve got the best position to present the next Lankan premier league,” SLC president Thilanga Sumathipala said.The Nidahas Trophy will see Bangladesh and India take part alongside Sri Lanka in a T20 tri-series from March 6 to 18.
