Sri Lanka Cricket Team Resumes Training Adhere Government Guidelines

Sri Lanka Cricket Team Resumes Training Adhere Government Guidelines

On Monday a few selected Sri Lankan cricketers are set to resume training as informed by the cricket board. Professional cricket in the country has been suspended since March because of the worldwide pandemic situation.

SLC explains

Reportedly 13 players will join a 12-day residential camp at the Colombo Cricket Club. Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said in a statement. “The players taking part in the camp represent a general squad chosen from across all formats, and primarily consist of bowlers, as they need more time for conditioning before going into active competition.” The statement further added, “The players taking part in the camp represent a general squad chosen from across all formats, and primarily consist of bowlers, as they need more time for conditioning before going into active competition,” it said. “Members taking part in the camp will not be allowed to leave the hotel premises or the practice venue to attend personal matters.”

Sri Lanka team to be overseen by a coaching team

A team of four coaching and support staff will oversee the entire process. During this time the players are not allowed to go outside of the hotel premises and practice venue. In the initial days of the lockdown, most of the players were given home-training regimes customised by Mickey Arthur, the head coach. The Sri Lanka Cricket added it the statement that it would adhere to the government regulations and make sure that everybody in the camp follows the guidelines.

Sri Lanka Cricket officials are keen to host India for a limited-overs series in July, however, Indian cricket board wants to wait before giving a word. India’s international travel is still restricted as the country is observing the fifth phase of the lockdown due to the COVID-19. So the BCCI wants to wait for further clarifications and instructions provided by the government regarding international travel in July to take a final call for the Sri Lanka tour.
