The Test series will begin on March 19 at the old fortress in Galle in Sri Lanka. Since 2015, Sri Lanka has lost only two tests at this venue and importantly their last defeat at this venue came against England in 2018.

The second Test will be played in the national capital Colombo at R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium. The series will have 120 points at stake in the ICC World Test Championship. At the moment, the Sri Lanka Cricket Team is on their away tour to Australia to play a three-match of T20I series.

Sri Lanka is also scheduled to play a three-match T20I series against India before hosting the English team. It will be followed by two Tests against Zimbabwe, one against Ireland and three ODIs along with two T20Is against West Indies.

In the ICC Test Championship table, Sri Lanka is currently in third place while England placed fifth.

Besides being an amateur travel blogger, I am an out-and-out cricket buff, breathing this game 24x7. I endlessly surf a channel in hope that I get some riveting action of this game
