After halting their 2020 tour of Sri Lanka mid-way through a warm-up match due to the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020, England return to the country just under a year later to complete the two match test series.
Both matches will be played at the picturesque Galle International Stadium in Galle in the southwestern tip of the country. England last played at the ground in November 2018, as they won their first test match in Galle by 211 runs on their way to a historic 3-0 series win.
Unfortunately it looks like the matches are going to be played behind closed doors due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However click on each of the fixtures below for further information on travel, ticketing and venue information.
