Sri Lanka Cricket's new stadium project suspended

Intl. Cricket stadium at Homagama to go ahead

Sri Lanka coach Mickey Arthur said that the team may need abour four to five days to build back the momentum they had before the coronavirus pandemic forced a freeze on cricket activities.

Sri Lanka Cricket board had previously stated that the establishment of this stadium was planned in view of the increasing demand for the game and especially due to the popularity of the short formats of the game.

In December 2019, Mickey was appointed as the new head coach of Sri Lanka by the Sri Lanka Cricket replacing interim coach Rumesh Ratnayake.

Speaking exclusively over telephone from Colombo on Thursday, he said, "We are keeping all worldwide grounds ready for any kind of matches-be it internationals or domestic tournament".

Even de Mel confirmed the development to this publication.

"We had a quick meeting because we are starting to get out plans in place for June 1. Once we get the official go-ahead from the ministry of health I will start putting meat into that structure with the captains and my support staff." .

While the players will stay at a star hotel in Colombo and use the gymnasium and the pool, they are likely to train at the SSC Cricket ground for the outdoor sessions. "The world as we know is going to change", he said. "There won't be any batting sessions". "We are hoping that the curfew breaks next week and we can bring in our fast bowling group (for training)".

"We have to be mindful of the players' readiness ... we have to figure out other details about this tour". I have shared my thoughts with them, and they have had their inputs.

They said the tour is off. "A lot of it has been done on one-on-one basis with our players", Arthur had said.

England's two-match Test series in Sri Lanka was one of many worldwide series that have been indefinitely postponed due to the pandemic. There are fewer than 500 active cases of the disease on the island - that number has remained steady for roughly two weeks.
