Nick Lee appointed Sri Lanka cricket trainer

Nick Lee Strength & Conditioning Coach of Sussex

Nick Lee, the 32-year-old former right-hand batsman from Kent, has been appointed Sri Lanka’s trainer, the SLC announced on Sunday.

Lee will replace Michael Main, the former Hampshire strength and conditioning coach, who was initially appointed for a two-year term in May last year but quit from his post at the end of the home series against Australia. Lee will assume his role from October.

Lee was part of the minor county side Suffolk, and was a presence in the Minor Counties Championship tournament for over six years, until 2010.

He played 13 matches in his first-class career, in which he scored 490 runs at 30.62, including three half-centuries and a highest of 79 not out. He is part of the Sussex set-up in county cricket, currently working as a strength and conditioning coach. (Courtesy ESPN Cricinfo)
