Sports: Sri Lanka's Tour to England in uncertainty

Friday, October 24, 2008

The tour clashes with the Indian Premier League (IPL) in which a host of top Sri Lankan players have contracts.

The England and Wales Cricket Board said it had heard nothing from the Sri Lankan authorities.Big names such as Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara and Muttiah Muralitharan are among 13 Sri Lankan players with IPL contracts.

Previously, the Sri Lankan sports minister said they should be excused Test duty to respect those deals. The players have these very beneficial deals with the IPL and don't want to give them up, he said. The senior players saw the window in April and May when they could go to India and earn lots.
