CocaCola 410px 19 09 14There is so much of talent in this country and unless we harness this and support it properly, we are going to lose that talent, former world class cricketer - Aravinda de Silva says.

He was speaking this morning (Sep. 19) at the commencement of the super camp training held by the Coca-Cola Cricket Pathways (CCCP) initiative.

"With the support of coke, it had made things much more easier and the scale became that much bigger. So I hope in the future that I will be able to take this to a different level and maybe give more opportunity to the youth in this country, he added"

Continuing its initiative to build grassroots cricketing talent in Sri Lanka, CCCP commenced the three-day world class training camp at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) for 60 talented young cricketers  from 300 participants of CCCP's fourth season.

Conducted in participation with the Coca Cola Sri Lanka, the Aravinda de Silva Foundation, Sri Lanka Cricket and the Sri Lanka School Cricket Association, this camp will provide training on all aspects of the game under the country's top coaches and past cricketers.

Shamal Gunewardena - Country marketing manager - Coca Cola Beverages Sri Lanka Ltd and Shantha Fernando - Marketing Operations Manager Sri Lanka and Maldives also attended the event.

Through a series of 20 competitive matches, the 60 participants will be placed in four separate groups to ensure that they play a minimum of three matches each and receive optimal exposure. Adhering to international standards, the Super Camps are conducted in  the form of limited-over matches, and provide participants with the opportunity to play competitively against the best young cricketers from across the island. They will take place under the watchful eyes of the national coaches and national junior selectors.
