Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is likely to allow 20% of fans for the Lanka Premier League (LPL), scheduled to be played at four venues from August 28 to September 20.
“At present we are hoping to allow 20% spectators or maybe more at each ground”, a top SLC official said a day after the tournament was announced.
“We are in consultation with the health ministry on this issue.”
The fan entry at the ground will bring cheer to Sri Lanka’s oldest cheerleader, Percy Abeysekara.
Abeysekara, who turns 84 tomorrow said, “I will cheer with the other spectators at the ground. I preferably have cheered my motherland for 30 years without the flag and 30 years with the flag from the Eden Gardens to the smallest ground in the world”.
The names of five participating teams are Colombo Super Kings, Galle Lions, Kandy Royals, Jaffna Sunrisers and Dambulla Capitols.
