The Sri Lanka Cricket has released the names of their 22-players squad that will participate in the upcoming matches against South Africa and England.
On the other hand, England will travel to Sri Lanka for two Tests in January 2021, which is also a part of the ICC World Test Championship. The first Test will commence on January 14 and close on January 18, while the second will be played from January 22-26. The Galle International Stadium will host both the Tests behind closed doors.
England’s tour of Sri Lanka had to be postponed during March 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic. The tour was then carried over to January 2021.
Although his name has been included in the squad, Angelo Mathews will be unavailable for the South Africa tour due to injury. However, he will play against England.
