Lanka Premier League Fantasy Picks

T20 cricket is arguably the most popular white ball format due to its higher entertainment value and shorter game time. Many T20 cricket leagues have sprouted worldwide, including the USA's upcoming Major League Cricket tournament. While the Indian Premier League may have concluded, you don't have to wait too long to witness some top performers in this truncated format. After all, the fourth edition of the Lanka Premier League begins next month.

Lanka Premier League Overview

After multiple administrative issues and delays due to COVID, the LPL (Lanka Premier League) finally took off in November 2020. The subsequent editions of the tournament took place in 2021 and 2022. Jaffna has won all previous editions of the tournament. In 2023, The tournament will be held in Colombo, Kandy, and Hambantota.

Lanka Premier League Fantasy Picks

If you didn't have much success with your IPL fantasy teams, then no worries. You have another chance to win contests with the LPL fantasy games. The 2023 auction was concurrently held at the time of writing this article. We have listed some top picks to gain maximum points during the tournament.

Babar Azam

Babar is the fastest to reach 5000 runs in the T20 format. In T20Is, he averages 41.48 after 98 innings and has a decent strike rate of 128.40. While Angelo Matthews will be captaining the Colombo Strikers, Babar's leadership expertise will be vital to their chances. One area where Babar has potential for improvement is his strike rate, which is a little low. But as a fantasy player, you can expect him to earn plenty of runs for your team.

Dhananjaya de Silva

Dhananjaya was signed by Dambulla for $76,000 this season. He is an underappreciated player who can make handy contributions with both bat and ball. Dhananjaya has amassed 2072 runs in T20s, at an average of 23.81 and a strike rate of 127. He is also a handy bowler, thanks to his economy rate of 7.25 and strike rate of 22.5 deliveries per wicket. In January 2023, Dhananjaya played five T20 games and averaged 42 fantasy points per game. You can auto-select him in your teams if you run short of time.

Dilshan Madushanka

Dilshan became the most expensive player in the LPL this season, bagging $92,000 to play for the defending champions, Jaffna Kings. The 22- year old has a limited amount of experience. He has only played 21 T20 games and featured in 11 T20 international matches. However, he can generate considerable pace, and as a left-arm seamer, he can bring the ball back to the right-handers. This makes him a vital pick for your team.

Kasun Rajitha

Kasun had one of the best performances in the previous edition of the Lanka Premier League. He scalped 13 wickets in just eight games in the last edition of the Lanka Premier League. Kasun has an impressive collection of 87 wickets after bowling for 60 innings in T20 matches. His economy rate is a shade below eight runs per over, while his strike rate is an excellent 14.5 deliveries per wicket.


The Lanka Premier League is an interesting league with a mix of highly experienced and uncapped players. However, these combinations may lead to confusion while creating fantasy teams. But we have given you some top picks expected to meet or exceed their tournament expectations. By selecting them, you can save cash rewards.
