Cricket Australia is likely to allow Australian players to participate the inaugural Sri Lanka Premier League (SLPL) Twenty20 tournament, starting July 19.
Cricket Australia's stand is in stark contrast to the one of Board of Control for Cricket in India, which banned its players from taking part in SLPL, leaving the island nation "surprised and hurt".
Cricket Australia acting chief executive Michael Brown said he would discuss the details of the tournament with Sri Lanka Cricket officials at the ICC's annual conference in Hong Kong next week, but indicated it had CA's "in principle" support.
"We've got a number of CA camps during July, so our players will be training in preparation for the tour (of Sri Lanka) two days after the SLPL finishes - they'll be locked into camps," Brown was quoted as saying in The Telegraph. "For the other guys, we just need to find out what the comp is, who's involved.
"We want to support Sri Lanka Cricket, like we want them to support us. We want their players to play in our Big Bash."
