Sri Lanka to sculpt its own IPL
Advertisement
#1
Quote:Sri Lanka is planning to clone the Indian Premier League (IPL), cricket's hottest property that has lifted the economy of the game.

Interestingly, this twin will also be called the IPL. However this time, the ‘I’ and ‘P’ will stand for Inter Provincial.

The Sri Lanka Cricket board is currently conversing to create the Inter Provincial League (IPL) that the pearl island believes will open gates for various advertisers to showcase their products and lead to several investment opportunities.


While speaking to the audience at the IIFA, former Sri Lankan cricketer and head of the national selection committee Arvind D’Silva said, “Three years back, just when test cricket was dying and there was an urgent need to keep the game alive, the IPL was formed. And then, the entire dynamics of the game changed. Boundaries were cleared and players were merged from all across the globe to form teams. As a result, the viewership base for the game widened and a slew of advertisers walked in to endorse the sport. Hence, we see the Inter Provincial League to also create similar opportunities.
