Sri Lanka's cricket administrators scrapped their Twenty20 league yesterday after franchise holders defaulted on payments for the tournament and failed to guarantee payments to players, a top official said.

Sri Lankan Cricket decided not to go ahead with the Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) tournament and sack the seven franchise holders who failed to pay up, SLPL Director Ajit Jayasekera said. 

Jayasekera said the authorities hoped to come up with a new model for a Twenty20 tournament next year.
