The third edition of the Lanka Premier League is set to start from December 6 to December 23. It was originally scheduled to take place from 31 July to 21 August 2022 but it was postponed due to the economic crisis in Sri Lanka, with the aim to play it later in 2022.
Five teams compete in the tournament with Jaffna Kings being the most successful having won both the 2020 and 2021 competitions. The other teams competing are Colombo Stars, Dambulla Giants, Galle Gladiators, and Kandy Falcons.
Here are five players to watch out for in LPL 2022:
Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga is the no.1 ranked T20I bowler in the world currently. The 25-year-old is also capable to turn the match with his bat. Recently, he played a brilliant inning against Afghanistan in an ODI match scoring 66 runs off 46 balls.
Hasaranga was the highest wicket-taker in the 20-20 World Cup as he took 15 wickets in the tournament at a superb economy of 6.41. He also became the most expensive Sri Lankan player in the history of the Indian T20 League as the all-rounder was bought by Bengaluru Franchise for INR 10.75 crore in 2022.
