We need to get in as many of our players as possible since the WC is in SL. On an another note, I like the idea that atleast one out of the remaining 7 SL players in the starting XI should be U-21

May 14, 2012, 04:27 AM
Will be awesome if more BD players get selected.....didn't SLPL got postponed since no Indian players were allowed to play in this league?

Indians buy out SLPL franchises

Sports Desk

Colombo: Indian business enterprises showed keen interest in the inaugural edition of the Sri Lanka Premier League and bought all the seven franchises on offer.

However, The BCCI had last year prohibited its players from participating in the league, which forced the Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) to abort the opening season of the SLPL.

While Wadhawan Holdings shelled out the highest bid – US$ 5.02 million -- for Wayamba, Number One Sports Consulting offered a bid of US$ 4.98 million for Kandurata.

The Uva and Ruhuna went to Success Sports and Pearl Overseas respectively for an amount of US$ 4.6 million.

Basnahira was bought by Indian Cricket Dundee at US$ 4.33 million, while Uthura at US$ 3.4 million went to Rudra Sports.

Varun Beverages, meanwhile, spent US$ 3.22 million for Nagenahira.

The debut edition of the SLPL is scheduled to commence from August 10, with the final to be held on August 31.

The matches will be played in Colombo and Pallekele.

The franchises will be allowed a maximum of 18 players, including six foreign cricketers, for registration. However, a team can play only two foreigners in the playing eleven.

The value of each player will be decided by SLC in the player draft to be held on July 5 and 6.

Only 2 foreign players? While this is good for SL as their local players will get more chances but SLPL might struggle to get International crowd. But since all the franchises are Indian company owned maybe they don't need the whole world to follow just India alone might do.

June 29, 2012, 05:03 PM
How do they even get Indian crowd with two foreign players playing?? Indians won't flock to watch the franchisees. Then even those two players have to be Indians..it's gonna be one boaring tournament and if the pitches are like usual low scoring and turning Lankan pitches, then it will be a flop tournament. I think this two player policy will change as soon as the franchisees take control ...

June 29, 2012, 09:08 PM
2 players!?!? No chance for Tamim or Shakib.

June 29, 2012, 09:17 PM
its gonna be changed dont worry!

[বাংলা]বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেটারদের প্রতি এসএলপিএলের আগ্রহ

<hr style="border: 1px solid rgb(214, 214, 214);" color="#fff" width="100%"> স্পেশাল করেসপন্ডেন্ট

<table align="right" border="0" cellpadding="5" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td> http://www.banglanews24.com/images/imgAll/2012June/SM/slpl-2011-sri-lanka20120702211051.jpg </td></tr></tbody></table> ঢাকা: শ্রীলঙ্কান প্রিমিয়ার লিগ (এসএলপিএল) টি-টোয়েন্টি ক্রিকেটে বাংলাদেশের অনেক খেলোয়াড়কে দেখা যেতে পারে। এখন পর্যন্ত বাংলাদেশের ১১ জন ক্রিকেটারকে তালিকাভুক্ত করেছে এসএলপিএল কর্তৃপক্ষ।

শীর্ষ অলরাউন্ডার সাকিব আল হাসানের সঙ্গে আছেন, তামিম ইকবাল, মাশরাফি বিন মুর্তজা, মুশফিকুর রহিম, নাসির হোসেন, ইমরুল কায়েস, আব্দুর রাজ্জাক, মোহাম্মদ আশরাফুল, ইলিয়াস সানি, জুনায়েদ সিদ্দিকী ও শফিউল ইসলাম।

বাংলাদেশ ক্রিকেট বোর্ড (বিসিবি) আশা করে বেশ কয়েকজন ক্রিকেটার এসএলপিএলে খেলার সুযোগ পাবেন। যদিও এসএলপিএল থেকে এখনও বিসিবির সঙ্গে কোন ধরণের যোগাযোগ করা হয়নি বলে জানিয়েছেন, বিসিবি ক্রিকেট পরিচালনা বিভাগের ভারপ্রাপ্ত ম্যানেজার সাব্বির খান। বাংলানিউজকে তিনি বলেন,‘সিইও বা আমার সঙ্গে এসএলপিএল থেকে কোন মেইল পাঠানো হয়নি। এ বিষয়ে বলার মতো কোন কিছু আমাদের হাতে নেই।’

এজেন্টের মাধ্যমে যোগাযোগ করে এসএলপিএলে যাওয়ার চেষ্টা করছেন ক্রিকেটাররা। সাতটি দল নিয়ে আগস্টে হবে এসএলপিএল। সেপ্টেম্বরে টি-টোয়েন্টি বিশ্বকাপের আগে এ ধরণের একটি টুর্নামেন্ট লঙ্কানদের জন্য ভালো প্রস্তুতি হয়ে যাবে। কন্ডিশনের সঙ্গে অভ্যস্ত হওয়ার জন্য বাংলাদেশের ক্রিকেটারদের জন্যও এটা একটা ভালো সুযোগ।

এসএলপিএল খেলোয়াড়দের সম্মানী নির্ধারণ করে দেবে। লটারির মাধ্যমে দলগুলো তাদের পছন্দের খেলোয়াড় বেছে নিতে পারবে।

I think it won't be comparable to BPL but they were smart enough not to copy the IPL's auction system, its just not feasible.

July 5, 2012, 12:15 PM
There are 5 cricketers selected for 3 teams:

Shakib, Tamim, Mushfiq, Nasir and Sunny!

No SLPL till board settles central contracts - Jayawardene

Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/player/49289.html) has said that the country's cricketers may decide against taking part in the inaugural season of the Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) if the Sri Lanka board doesn't 'settle' the players' central contracts.

"We will only sign SLPL contracts once the central contracts of Sri Lanka players are settled," Jayawardene said at the launch of the SLPL. "We discussed it about a month ago, before the Pakistan tour. I hope we can sort it out within the next few days."

The players and board have been negotiating contracts since March this year, and this issue follows the saga of delay in player payments.

SLC had announced a list (http://www.espncricinfo.com/sri-lanka-premier-league-2012/content/story/571311.html) of 107 local players and 56 overseas players for the first edition of the SLPL, which is set to start on August 10. Jayawardene is part of the Wayamba franchise.
