Sri Lanka Cricket Reveals New Domestic Structure
Sri Lanka Cricket and its premier clubs have "structured a new formula for its domestic first-class games," according to the PTI. The new tournament involves three-day games and will be the "only first-class event" on the island. The event will include a "four-day final between the top teams of respective tiers." The new format was reached after teams "protested vehemently" against efforts to restrict the tournament to just 10 teams. The new domestic structure "will come in to effect from the current season with a phased out implementation of the structure" (PTI, 11/3).
