After a coronavirus-induced hiatus, competitive cricket has finally returned to Sri Lanka as the UVA Premier League T20 tournament began from Monday (June 29).
Monaragala Hornets, Unilions Mahiyanganaya, Badulla Sea Eagles and Wellawaya Vipers are the four teams competing for the coveted trophy.
A double round-robin format is being followed in this tournament. The top-ranked team will qualify for the final and the second and third-placed team will play an eliminator to decide the other finalist.
Sri Lanka’s international players had resumed training earlier this month but they are not part of this T20 tournament.
