Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has appointed former cricketer Russel Arnold as the Director of Lankan Premier League (LPL) tournament that will get underway in August this year. SLC has been laying the groundwork for the tournament since November last year.

The 44-year-old Arnold, who lives in Sydney since his international retirement in 2007, has a tough task at his hand after Sri Lanka's initial franchise-based tournament - Sri Lanka Premier League - failed to flourish and was cancelled after 2012.

Given the success of various T20 leagues such as IPL, CPL, BPL and PSL, the Sri Lankan board has been mooting the idea of a franchise based tournament of its own.
