Starting from this year, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) will field an Emerging Team to play in the annually conducted Mercantile Cricket Association (MCA) Premier League, a 50-over competition.

The move comes following an invitation from the MCA, which requested SLC to field a Youth Team in the 28th MCA Premier League 2021.

A team will be formed by selecting players from the Development and Emerging squads of the SLC to take part in the tournament, thus enabling those players to gain much-needed playing opportunities.

Six leading mercantile firms will take part in the MCA tournament, which will be held from 18 April-2 May.
