In a media release, Sri Lanka Cricket said : 'The courage, determination and boldness of a lion, which is seen in the main symbol of the Sri Lankan national flag, is the central theme in the Lankan Premier League (LPL) logo.
The LPL logo captures the rich culture and heritage of the nation, the free flowing spirit of the people and the fearless attitude of the Sri Lankan players when they are on the field.'
'The use of red and orange colours in the logo is inspired by the historical Kandyan paintings and Sigiriya Frescos of Sri Lanka whereas the use of blue and yellow depicts the colours of Sri Lanka Cricket.
The colours of the lion’s mane represents the five teams that will battle it out in the middle. The colours, applied in sweeping brush strokes, enhances the sense of volume and depicts the speed of the game and the flaming mane of the lion represents the unending passion and enthusiasm for the game which is loved by one and all in the nation. The objective of using these colours is to establish the tournament as a Sri Lankan brand which appeals equally both to the local and international fans,' it adds.
The LPL is scheduled to be played from November 21 to December 13, 2020 at two venues—Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy and Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota while the Players Draft is scheduled to be held tomorrow (19).
