Lanka Premier League 2024 Schedule, Teams, Format, & Broadcast Details

Sri Lanka’s premier domestic T20 tournament, the Lanka Premier League (LPL), is gearing up for its fifth edition, kicking off on July 1st, 2024. The three-week cricketing extravaganza will see five teams battle it out for the coveted LPL trophy, following a format similar to the popular Indian Premier League (IPL).

LPL 2024: Tournament Format 

The LPL 2024 will feature a double round-robin format, where all five teams will play each other twice during the league stage. This translates to a total of eight matches per team. The top four teams on the points table will then progress to the playoffs, mirroring the IPL’s knockout structure. The playoffs will consist of Qualifier 1, Eliminator, Qualifier 2, and the grand finale, which will be held on July 21st, 2024.

LPL 2024 Venues and Match Timings

Cricket fans across Sri Lanka can expect action-packed matches across three venues during the tournament. The Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele, Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium in Dambulla, and the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo will host all LPL 2024 matches. The afternoon matches will kick off at 3 PM IST, while the evening matches are scheduled for a 7:30 PM IST start.

LPL 2024 Teams and Changes

This year’s LPL sees the participation of five familiar franchises: B-Love Kandy, Dambulla Sixers, Jaffna Kings, Galle Marvels, and Colombo Strikers. However, two franchises underwent name changes recently. The Dambulla franchise, previously known as the Dambulla Thunders, was rebranded as the Dambulla Sixers after a change in ownership. Similarly, the Galle Titans transformed into the Galle Marvels following the acquisition by a new group.

Adding a touch of international glamour to the tournament, former Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke has been roped in as the LPL 2024 brand ambassador. Clarke’s association with the league is expected to generate significant buzz and enhance the tournament’s visibility on a global scale.

The LPL 2024 promises an exciting twist to the cricketing action with the introduction of “power-blast overs.” Similar to the powerplay rule, these overs will restrict the fielding team to only four fielders outside the 30-yard circle. However, unlike the powerplay which is limited to the first six overs of an innings, the power-blast overs will be implemented in the 16th and 17th overs, adding a new element of strategic depth to the slog overs.
