Sri Lanka top Players to Skip SLPL Twenty20 2011

Sri Lanka's top players will skip largest part of the matches in the Sri Lanka premier league T20, dealing another blow to the struggling event, an official said Tuesday.

Captain Tilakaratne Dilshan, Ex-captain Kumar Sangakkara and veteran Mahela Jayawardene, all-rounder Angelo Mathews and Lasith Malinga are among local players expected to miss most of the 10-day tournament starting Thursday.

"The players will likely choose which matches they want to play, because they are being rested for the upcoming Australian tour," Sri Lanka Cricket media manager Brian Thomas told AFP.

The Australian team arrives in Colombo on July 30 to play three Test match Series, five one-day internationals and two Twenty20 games during their tour that ends on September 20.
