    Woah, this is a really informative post! SLPL have totally changed the team names, a while ago they were like "Basnahira Bears", "Kandurata Kites", etc. Looks like they got a lot of negative feedback on those names, but still can't understand some of these team names like "Uva NEXT"! Oh well, we'll see if this is a success like the IPL or whether it's another one of those T20 leagues. :)

    It is really awesome way to give entertainment to cricket lover as many Asian cricket boards are trying such as Bangladesh, Srilanka and in future Pakistan.
