England to tour Sri Lanka for two Tests in March

England will tour Sri Lanka for a two-Test series in March next year, with 120 ICC World Test Championship points at stake.

The first Test begins on 19 March at the old Sri Lankan fortress in Galle, where Sri Lanka have lost just two Tests since 2015, the last defeat, co-incidentally, also coming against England, when they visited these shores in 2018. The tour will then conclude with the second and final Test at the R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium in the national capital Colombo.

  1. England had a plan and they executed it to perfection in SL last time and ran off with a 3-0 win which is insane and it still hurts. We were simply not good enough and most worryingly were out-spun at home. Anyone who has followed Eng in SL would understand the significance of this huge move by Eng and credit to them. But, this is a new series with WTC points up for grabs. The wickets should be flat and spinning by March – we need a decent plan starting with guy like Mathews who did little to impact that series.

    Englands plan was simple. Bat with intent to get 250 and wait for SL to self destruct. We did out bit in bowling them out for decent scores, but just couldn’t bat them out of the game which was simply not good enough at home.
