LPL 2020 will be played on that field

The LPL matches were originally scheduled to be played at Kandy, Hambantota, and Dambulla Stadium. But for the coronavirus, Sri Lanka Cricket had decided to move the LPL out of the country keeping in mind the health of the players. But in the end, Sri Lankan cricket has not decided that LPL 2020 will be on the soil of the country. Sri Lanka Cricket has not chosen Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium in Hambantota as the only stadium for LPL 2020. This stadium will host all the matches of IPL 2020 which means 23 matches.
