24 sports clubs receive Rs. 244 million Featured

Sri Lanka Cricket has distributed nearly Rs. 244 million to 24 leading sports clubs in order to develop the local game.

Fourteen SCs in division one got Rs. 11 each, while 10 in division two received Rs. nine million each.

The SCs themselves will manage the grants, said SLC president Thilanga Sumathipala.

Also, SLC has secured bowling machines at Rs. 500,000 each, although they are priced around Rs. 700,000.

A spinner’s bowling machine costs around Rs. 1.7 million.

In the next season, each club will have to submit a proper audit of how they utilized the money in order to become eligible for further funding.
