Sri Lanka tour of Bangladesh, 2022: Fixtures, Squads and All You Need to Know
Sri Lanka’s men's cricket team is travelling to Bangladesh for 2 Test matches. The Test series will be a part of the ICC World Test Championship from 2021 to 2023.
Before the Test Series begins, a practice match will be played from 10th to 11th May with Bangladesh Cricket Board’s team facing Sri Lankan team. The First Test match will be played from 15th May to 19th May, 2022 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram while the Second Test match will be played from 23rd May to 27th May, 2022 at the Sher-e-Bangla Cricket Stadium, Dhaka.
Sri Lanka have announced their squad for the Test Series. They have included the right handed batter Oshada Fernando in the mix. He was not named in the squad for India tour but has made a come-back in the national set up. His domestic form has been very impressive and that urged the selectors to include him for the Test Series against Bangladesh.
Pathum Nissanka, who has been a regular in the national side has still not recovered from back injury and does not feature in the squad for Bangladesh Tests.
Uncapped players like Dilshan Madushanka and Kamil Mishara have been included in the squads for the Test series.
The Bangladesh Cricket Board have also announced 18-member squad for the upcoming Test Series against Sri Lanka. Players like Shadman Islam and Abu Jayed Chowdhury Rahi have not been picked up, owing to their poor performances in recent times. Mehidy Hasan Miraz has also been excluded from the First Test after he sustained an injury while playing in a DPL match. Another player that will miss out on playing in the series is Taskin Ahmed, who also picked up an injury.
Bangladesh Cricket Board have included all-rounder Mosaddek Hossain and off-spinner Nayeem Hasan in the mix due to their brilliant domestic performances.
