LPL T20 Director has confirmed that Andre Russell Confirmed his availability for LPL T20 After a change in Govt Policy Regarding 14 Day Quarantine Period for the foreign players.
Ravin Wickramaratne Said “Andre Russell has confirmed that he wants to play in the LPL. Earlier he pulled out because he was nursing an injury. On Wednesday I got the news that he is available, and the franchise will have to approach him,”
LPL Tournament Director Ravin Wickramaratne Said “The vacant positions of the four franchises that have still not completed their list of players will be filled by 15 November,”
Due to one venue hosting all 23 matches of the LPL in 14 days, Wickramaratne said that none of the teams will be provided with the facility to practice on the centre pitches. “We are putting up lights for the ten side wickets that will be utilized for practices under lights by the five teams,” Wickramaratne said.
With the LPL running parallel to the Australia-India one-day series, there may be days where no LPL matches will be played if the dates clash. “Basically, we have given the time slot. On Australia-India match days we will either have to keep the dates free for rest and practice, or else we will play only one match,” said Wickramaratne.
