Australia Tour of Sri Lanka - Squads, Fixtures and All you need to Know
After a gap of 6 years, Australia will be touring Sri Lanka to play in all formats, starting with 3 T20I's and followed by a 5 match ODI series and 2 Test matches.
The T20I series will begin on the 7th of June, 2022 and end on the 12th of July. The matches are slotted to be played Colombo, Kandy and Galle.
When Australia last toured Sri Lanka in July-August 2016, the visitors were white washed in the Test Series by 3-0. However, they won the ODI series by 4-1 and the T20I's by 2-0.
Cricket Australia CEO Nick Hockley said, "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. 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".
SLC CEO Ashley De Silva said, "We are in for some exciting cricket, especially considering that an Australian tour to Sri Lanka is taking place after five [six] years. The T20 Series will help our preparations for the T20 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."
