Sony, Sky Sports, and PTV have bought the rights to broadcast the 2020 Lanka Premier League (LPL), with Sri Lankan channel ITN securing the local terrestrial rights.
Sony will broadcast the tournament throughout much of South Asia, particularly in India where Sri Lanka Cricket hopes desperately the tournament does well. PTV, meanwhile, will show it in Pakistan, while Sky Sports will broadcast it in the United Kingdom. Several Pakistan and England players have been drafted in the tournament, and two former India players – Irfan Pathan and Munaf Patel – have also been picked up by LPL teams. At least two of the five LPL teams have owners in India; the Galle Gladiators franchise is headed by Pakistani owners; and Jaffna Stallions have owners based in the UK.
