Premier League Lanka!! And Too Much Of Cricket
Sri Lanka Cricket has signed a new deal with Somerset Entertainment Ventures to hold the Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) in 2012, The deal was signed on May 5 and the tournament has been tentatively scheduled to be held between August 10 and August 31, just ahead of the ICC World Twenty20 that will be held in Sri Lanka in September. ( source : cric info.) BBL, the bangladesh premier league was quite successful and Hope the Sri Lankan provides some handful of entertainment for the viewers as well.. Keep waiting for that,the cricket will soon be watched like an EPL. But they need a long way to go, to achieve those. This is just a beginning. Hope the Test/odi cricket will continue and at the same time the viewers might get bored of too much cricket. Even the report sometime ago said, The TRP ratings of IPL-5 has come down, this is one good reason for too much of cricket and Injury management will always be a concern if these kind of things continue and when premier leagues are started by every cricket playing nations!
