Zimbabwe's Brendan Taylor has declined an offer to commentate in the Lanka Premier League (LPL). 

According to the highly placed sources, the 34-year-old wicketkeeper batsman had been approached to be a part of the television commentary team for the last three matches of the Lanka Premier League.

"Unfortunately I'm not commentating", Taylor confirmed. 

Taylor would have had to move from the present team bio-secured bubble to the other bio-bubble which is meant for the commentary team. 

The organizers are not inviting any foreigners because of the quarantine issues.

The new commentator, if signed within the those presently involved with the LPL, will be replacing Mickey Arthur. The national head coach Arthur and Dr. Daminda Attanayake are leaving for South Africa on Saturday night to oversee the arrangements there before the team leaves next week. 

Taylor was playing for Kandy Tuskers, the team which was knocked out of the tournament.   

Interestingly, one of the two other Kandy team players-Dale Steyn and Irfan Pathan-were also considered for the commentary but Pathan, who has come to Sri Lanka with the family was not keen to move out from the team bio-bubble. 

Pathan did the IPL commentary from a studio in Mumbai. 

Kandy Tusker's local players have left the team hotel and the foreign players are to leave within a few days.
