Colombo: Sri Lanka’s cricket authorities on Sunday announced the indefinite postponement of the country’s Twenty20 league scheduled for next month and said revised dates will be decided by a new board.

The Lankan Premier League (LPL) was due to start on August 18, but an interim management body appointed last month decided to delay the tournament, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said in a statement.

“Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to inform that the LPL (T20) has been postponed indefinitely, until an elected body is constituted at the SLC,” the statement said. In late May, Sri Lanka’s Court of Appeal suspended elections for the crisis-ridden cricket board.
