Sri Lanka Cricket last week declared open a new facility in the High Performance Centre of the RPICS, in order to provide accommodation facilities for the cricketers.
The Player Accommodation Facility at the RPICS was declared open by Marylebone Cricket Club President Kumar Sangakkara at the invitation of SLC President Shammi Silva.
Sri Lanka Cricket will use this much needed facility to provide accommodation for the players representing the National, Emerging, ‘A’ Teams and National Age Group (Men’s) Teams as and when training camps are held for their respective squads.
The new state-of-the-art facility can provide accommodation for 39 cricketers at a given time, whilst accommodation facilities are also available for team coaches and managers.
Sri Lanka Cricket also has plans to build a similar facility at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in the near future.
