Innovation Factory’s MD and Founder, Mr. Omar Khan, has made an exciting move in the world of cricket by acquiring a team in the highly anticipated Lanka Premier League (LPL) 2023. The player auction for the LPL will take place on June 14th, 2023 at the renowned Shangri-la Hotel in Colombo.
Unlike previous editions, the franchise will have the unique opportunity to competitively bid for players during the auction, deviating from the traditional player draft selection process. Among the overseas direct signings made by the franchise so far are international stars Fakhar Zaman, Angelo Mathews and Mujeeb Ur Rahman.
Expressing his enthusiasm about the acquisition, Mr. Omar Khan said,
“I am thrilled to be a part of the B-love Kandy family. Together, we will redefine what it means to be a successful team in the Lanka Premier League, 2023. We will bring a fresh perspective, unwavering dedication, and innovative strategies to the table. Our goal is to create a team that not only excels on the field but also becomes a source of inspiration and pride for our fans.
Mr. Anil Mohan, Chairman of the IPG Group, warmly welcomed the new owners of the Wanindu Hasaranga led Kandy franchise. He stated, “We are delighted to extend a warm welcome to the newest members of our league family, the B-Love network, and Mr. Omar Khan. This partnership marks an exciting chapter for our league as we continue to strive for excellence and provide exceptional entertainment for our dedicated fans, both locally and globally. Together, we are confident in our ability to build a successful franchise and curate unforgettable experiences for our passionate supporters.”
