Shakib could be seen in the first edition of LPL
Shakib Al Hasan, who is on a one-year ban, has only two months left in his sentence. If all goes well, Shakib’s ban will end on October 29. Shakib could be seen in the first edition of the Lankan Premier League LPL when the ban is lifted. The first edition of LPL will start next November. The franchises will surely be looking to take Shakib Al Hasan, who has dominated the T20 franchise league all over the world, in this league.
The Sri Lankan Cricket Board had earlier organized a franchise T20 league called SLPL. Due to various reasons, this event was not held at the end of the first event. This time, this event is going to be held on the field again under a new name (LPL) with some plans in hand. It is learned that the organizers are planning to start this event with some star cricketers.
According to foreign media reports about the LPL, about 30 foreign cricketers will play in the first edition of the LPL. Apart from Shakib, other cricketers like ABD Villiers, Eoin Morgan, Yuvraj Singh, Sunil Narine, Chris Gayle, Alex Hales, Shane Watson, Shoaib Malik, and Shahid Afridi are among the star cricketers.
A total of six teams will take part in the first edition of the LPL, one of which could be Pakistan. The names of the remaining five teams have already been finalized. The teams are Dambulla Hawks, Gaul Dolphins, Jaffna Cobras, Colombo Lions, and Candy Taskars.
