Our Training was at its best - Dimuth

“We were training very hard without any free time and especially continued our training both in the morning and evening sessions said Sri Lanka Test and One Day skipper Dimuth Karunaratne after the final day’s training session on Friday.

The first batch of Sri Lankan team members has finished their 12 day residential training camp for 12 successful days after the 81 day lock down period. This training period was conducted under the strict health regulations.

“Actually, as a captain I am very happy to see my teammates get this type of training after the 81 day lock down period due to coronavirus pandemic. We also expected to start our next training session after one week’s time with the assistance of our hard working coaching staff headed by Mickey Arthur”.

Karunaratne also said, to be honest, I feel it was really good. The last 80-90 days we were very tight and strength was not up to the mark also not good to take on practices. Actually even when I was training first day it was very hard for me. Now I am shaping well and and am doing my fitness work to reduce my weight.

As the captain I can give good message to my other team mates that We are trying to coming bounce back and hope to play good International cricket in future .

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Cricket head coach Mickey Arthur said ‘ Our training has been magnificent.

This is all part of return to play program. The returning to play program means we are getting our players ready to play cricket.

The bonus obviously takes lot more longer than the batsman so we need the bowlers to increase their work load and put them to start their bowling. Actually we have achieved that goal .

Sri Lankan team members did their training at CCC grounds from June 1 and they had to stay at Shangri-La Hotel during this period with the advice from medical officials.
