Speaking on the development, Mohamedali Budhwani (CMD TSL) said "We are extremely happy to partner with the IPG Group in helping create a world class cricket league. This is yet another milestone in our journey towards becoming a sporting behemoth. We had recently bagged the title of 'Title Sponsor' of the ongoing India-Bangladesh ODI series, marking our presence in serious cricket.
The new edition of Lanka Premier League would surely be action packed, going by the popularity that the previous 2 seasons have managed to garner worldwide. More so with Sony Pictures broadcasting the series primetime in major cricket loving nations like India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, United Kingdom and Afghanistan, the franchise guarantees supreme visibility. With 40 top international players and 85 local players in the league, the league promises to be a treat for all cricket fans around the globe. Many world class players have emerged from Sri Lanka. The inclusion of international players in the league implies increased popularity of the league in the subcontinent.
I have repeatedly mentioned about how we intend pacing up in all the verticals we have chosen to operate in. All of the announcements we have made in the recent past vindicate our claims. We promise more action going ahead, not only in the cricket vertical but also other area."
