Sri Lanka became strict with the fitness of cricketers, salary will be deducted if they do not run 2KM in 8.10 minutes

The Sri Lanka Cricket Board has established strict rules regarding the fitness of its players. If Sri Lankan cricketers cannot run 2 kilometers in 8 minutes 10 seconds, their salary will be deducted.

In the new guidelines, different parameters have been set for cricketers. In this, if the player completes the race in 8 minutes and 10 seconds, he will receive the full salary according to the contract. The chances of these players joining the team will also be higher. Players who will take between 8.10 and 8.55 minutes to complete the 2 km distance will be eligible for selection in the national team, but a percentage of their salary will be deducted. On the other hand, if a player takes more than 8.55 seconds to complete the 2 km race, he will not be included in the national team.

Earlier this year, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board had set a time of 8 minutes and 35 seconds for players to complete the 2-kilometer race. Following advice from the Cricket Advisory Committee, it was increased to 8.55 seconds. Now, tightening the fitness rule for next year, this time has been reduced to 8 minutes and 10 seconds.

Sri Lanka’s selection committee chairman Pramodya Wickremesinghe has said of the new guidelines: “If a cricketer ran 2km in 8.35 minutes in February this year, he will now have to complete this race in 8.10. seconds. We want players to work hard on their fitness. We do not want any negligence when it comes to fitness.
