However, Ranji Trophy winner Faiz Fazal is the fan of Tim Paine’s captaincy in Test.

Last year, he became the first Australian Test captain since Steve Waugh in 2001 to retain the Ashes in a series in England. Fazal, further, also acknowledged Virat Kohli as a good Test captain.

“I am a fan of Tim Paine, he is very good as a Test captain. Virat is also very good in Tests,” Faiz Fazal said.

In 2016, Faiz Fazal earned the call from the Indian team. He played only one ODI against and then was dropped from the team although he scored a half-century in his debut match.

Talking about his snub from the national team, Fazal expressed that he was disappointed but was grateful to get even one match to represent India.

“The competition in Team India is very tight, I feel very fortunate that I played for India because that was the aim, to play for the country. Nothing can be compared with that. But I still aim to play for the Test team. But, yes, I feel disappointed that I could not continue my place in the Indian team,” he added.

“The game itself is my motivation and I love playing cricket at any stage. That’s why even in the off-season, unfortunately, this season, I could not go but I always travel to the UK and plays the premier league there.”

Faiz had exceptional domestic seasons in the past few years where he led Vidarbha to back to back title victories in 2017-18 and 2018-19.

A total of five teams which have been named after the cities of Colombo, Kandy, Galle, Dambulla and Jaffna will be participating in the tournament. And, because it’s a franchise-based competition, every state will have some unique name to attract the fans.

Although, the SLC is hasn’t yet confirmed, but as per a report in the Sunday Times, the teams’ names are Colombo Super Kings, Galle Lions, Kandy Royals, Jaffna Sunrisers and Dambulla Capitals.

Fans were quick to notice the similarity of these teams’ names as the titles appear to be inspired by IPL franchises.

Colombo’s team name has been inspired by Chennai Super Kings while Jaffna has been taken from Sunrisers Hyderabad. Similarly, Kandy and Dambulla are inspired by IPL franchises Rajasthan Royals, and Delhi Capitals. When it comes to Galle, then it looks to be inspired by Gujarat Lions, who were part of IPL in 2016 and 2017.

“You get a deja vu feeling, with the names of the teams for the 2020 Lanka Premier League (LPL),” Menon wrote.
