Newport Cricket Club Welcomes Sri Lanka
On Thursday, June 6th Sri Lanka trained at Newport Cricket Club in preparation for their ICC Trophy
Matches. The full squad arrived at 10.00am and took part in a full scale training session
immediately prior to their opening ICC Trophy match against New Zealand at Cardiff on Sunday.
A general warm up, a more serious football match and stretches led to fielding drills, before a full
net session was undertaken on the square.
Finally, the players indulged in lunch in the clubhouse, whilst watching the India v South Africa match
on TV, before signing autographs and memorabilia.
Sri Lanka were a real pleasure to host and proved great ambassadors for International Cricket.
