Wayamba will meet Basnahira on July 21 to start off the Sri Lanka Inter-Provincial T20 cricket tournament which has replaced the Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL). The five team competition will consist of 12 matches played over 10 days.
However, instead of Basnahira North and Basnahira South, two teams that took part in the last year's tournament, only one team from Basnahira will be in the fray this year while another team will be called the Combined Provinces.
All matches will be played as day games at the R. Premadasa International Stadium.
As such, the tournament will have a different format from previous seasons, featuring five teams and being held sometime between July and September 2011. The Sri Lanka Premier League was scheduled to replace the Inter-Provincial Twenty20.
