    Sandeep Bhammer added. Auction
    process is different where franchise having big pocket can bid for best player. I want Sander Bhammer
    again to sponsor SLPL this year. This is because he believes that both T20 and
    ODI can change the face of Sri Lankan cricket.slpl we love Sandeep bhammer to de in the slpl sponsordhip.

  • anil

    no matter whether indian play or not who care… love to watch chris ghayle …. he is just too good … no one is as hitter as he is…. the power man…

    • Mr X

      Mr Gayle is NOT playing SLPL… for your kind information.

  • Mr X

    I just read all the comments so far… one thing that I noticed is that one doesn’t miss an opportunity to put IPL or Indian cricket down…. can I smell something burning? Jealousy???? Remember this…. You can love them or hate them…. but you cannot ignore them…. that is the power of IPL and Indian Cricket. Otherwise why would most of you talk about the IPL or Indian cricket in a forum about a tournament exclusively run by Srilankan Cricket….the SLPL? And just for your info… Indians dont feature here as they will be unavailable , NOT BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT CONSIDERED…. ask the board members!!!! This concept was successfully introduced first by the BCCI and others including Aussies, Proteas, Bangladesh and now Srilankans have embraced it but none are as successful as IPL. Give credit where its due… and as far as the Pakistani players are concerned …. case of sour grapes????? All the best for SLPL… it will be a great success.

  • DJ/\/\

    Indian players r so selfish that’s why they are not playing SLPL. Every tournament is successful without indians….for example BPL and Big Bash….

  • http://no anees

    their is no indian, it means slpl will be transparent and free from match fixers.

    • anil

      hahaha very true…

  • Sahan

    SLPL is a great tournament to establish the glory of Sri Lanka Cricket to the World. But SLPL will lsoe its international glory because of some stupid team names.
    Ruhunu Royals and Uva Next names are ok. But I suppose, it will be better to change other names like this.
    Basnahira C.D should be changed as Western C.D
    Kandurata Warriors should be changed as Central Warriors
    Nagenahira Nagas should be changed as Eastern Nagas
    Uthuru Rudras should be changed as Northern Rudras
    Wayamba United should be changed as North Western United

    • hasitha

      hey are u a lankn or another
      lankan names are in sri lanka
      not english


    I hope SLPL much enjoyable like BPL & IPL. But why Indian players are not included in SLPL?

    • http://no anees

      indians are cheaters . they want their monopoly in cricket

  • http://shahmuradkhan/ shahmurad brohi

    I want that ahmed shahzad and imran nazir will open

  • Rasangi senaratne

    All the best and good luck on SLPL. That sounds so cool to play without Indians. When it comes to IPL their aim is to identify techineqs of forigen players but they prentended and say their effort is to known out country side skills. Yeah its possible but i guranate its a side effect not the main purpose. If not why did they pay that much amount for foriegn cricket stars? BTW finally i just wanted to tell you that SLPL won’t be rich of super players but real players. THANKS. Hope to be there:-)

        • Purnendu

          Sri lankan r the backward guys looking like charcoal

        • Mr X

          @ vidura…. The funniest comment of the century. Did you know that the whole of your SLPL is sponsored by Mahindra…. ( it is called Mahindra SLPL) and did you also know that this company is Indian (it is a moderate sized company, so just imagine how big the biggest ones would be). Show some respect as the SLPL is there for you guys to see, thanks to this INDIAN sponsor. If India was a poor country, why the hell are your players coming on their fours every IPL season????
