Uganda's cricket team to travel Sri Lanka for World Cup warm-up - DailyNewsColombo, Feb 10 (Daily Mirror) - Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) will facilitate the Uganda national cricket team for a 14-day training camp. 

The Ugandan team, who last year qualified for the T20 World Cup, arrived in the island today. 

"The facilitation will include the allocation of an international ground (GICS, Galle), the allocation of a team from the High Performance Center Development Squads to play seven T20 games, and providing match-related logistics, such as umpires, scorers, match meals, medical support, and other relevant assistance at the ground," SLC said in a media statement. 

"Sri Lanka Cricket's facilitation comes as a goodwill gesture for an Associate member of the International Cricket Council. The Uganda national team was facilitated following a request made by the Ugandan Cricket Association from the Speaker of Sri Lanka Parliament, Mahinda Yapa Abeywardana, when the honorable speaker attended the 27th Conference of Speakers and Presiding Officers of the Commonwealth held in Uganda from January 3 to 6, 2024."

    Ill-gotten money at work sponsored by you know who. Why not give the same facilities to our boys in remote areas and build the Sri Lankan team by supplementing them with food, vitamins, sports gears and transport. There are a lot of guys waiting in the wilderness .

    Who will benefit Saturday, 10 February 2024 06:38 PM

    Our facilities will go to the Ugandan team but the santhosam will go to cricket board officials'

    Captain Cool over to you. We remember your comments when the Bangladesh team was just grooming and SL strong team was relaxing and taking things easy.

    Looking at the wider picture, this is what the Commonwealth is about. We know how UK treated SL during to 30 year Civil war despite we being a member of the commonwealth and UK hounded us in Geneva? UK behaved like the b*st*rds of the CW.
