Published on

Australia will tour Sri Lanka for two Tests, five ODIs, and three T20I matches in June 2022, the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Board said in a press release.

The Aussies will play two Tests, five one-day internationals and three Twenty20 matches starting June 7, Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement.

“We are in for some exciting cricket, especially considering that an Australian tour to Sri Lanka is taking place after (six) years, since last time they toured Sri Lanka (in 2016),” said SLC CEO Ashley De Silva in a release.

“The T20 Series will help our preparations for the T20I World Cup, whilst the Test and ODI segments are also competitions of immense value for us, as we aim to move through the ICC World Test Championship rankings and also gearing up for the ICC Men’s World Cup in 2023.”

“We played some very competitive T20 internationals against Sri Lanka at home earlier this year and we are excited to tour there for the first time since 2016 in what is sure to be another terrific Test and white ball series,” said Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley.

There is no more challenging place to play cricket than on the subcontinent and this tour offers our players invaluable experience and another great opportunity to excel on the world stage.”

Australia’s tour of Sri Lanka starts on June 7 with the first two T20Is to be held at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The teams will move to Kandy for the third T20I and the first two ODIs.
