Pehla Media & Entertainment (PME) will telecast the Sri Lanka Premier League matches on CricOne channel available only on its Pehla and FirstNet bouquets. The channel is available on the Pehla Prime and,FirstNet Premium packages on the Pehla bouquet, E-Vision, Du packages in the UAE and Q-tel in Qatar.

Scheduled to be held from August 11 to August 31, the three-week sporting bonanza features 24 matches played out in Kandy and Colombo. It will feature international players such as Chris Gayle, Daniel Vettori, Shahid Afridi and Muttiah Murlitharan. “Being the shorter format of the game, we are expecting a much wider audience to see the game live as more office-goers tune in to CricOne to watch the matches. The Sri Lanka Premier League will set the stage for an ideal build-up leading to the ICC T20 World Cup happening in Sri Lanka,” said Majed Sahelli, Managing Director, Pehla Media & Entertainment FZ LLC.
