You can watch live streaming of Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) 2012 online. All the 24 matches of the SLPL 2012 will streamed on official SLPL YouTube channel.
The move to stream the tournament on Youtube had been initiated by Somerset Entertainment Ventures, who are handling the marketing and operations of the SLPL.
“It was an idea that was brought to us, and we approved it because it gives the tournament the benefit of reaching more cricket fans around the world,” said SLC president Upali Dharmadasa.
ESPN Star Sports (ESS) hold the broadcast rights to the SLPL and will be screening the tournament in Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Pakistan, as well as in a host of other South and South East Asian countries.
ESS already has the rights to existing T20 leagues from Australia (Big Bash League), England (Pro T20), Bangladesh (Bangladesh Premier League), CLT20 and ICC WT20.
The IPL, the most-watched T20 format, however, is with Multi Screen Media (earlier known as Sony Entertainment Television India).
ESS MD Peter Hutton said, “We are delighted to be able to telecast the live matches of the SLPL in India and throughout the region.
“It is an excellent addition to Star Cricket’s remarkable catalogue of content in the next year, headlined by India’s home series against Pakistan, England and New Zealand, the ICC World T20, the Champions League T20 and the ICC Champions trophy. We look to further growing our live cricket content.”
The SLPL will feature 42 international players participating from seven countries including Australia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, South Africa and West Indies.
Indian players won’t participate in SLPL following Indian cricket board’s decision not to allow its players to take part in the league.
