England has announced their Tour of Sri Lanka again, for 2021, which was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic. The tour was set to take place in March 2020, with England playing two first-class matches and two international test matches against the team from Asia. But, due to the rise in covid-19 cases and the situation getting worse with time at that stage, both the boards agreed to postpone the tour. Now after assessing all the situation and stuff, the England tour of Sri Lanka 2021 will take place in January 2021, with the same two test matches to be played, both in Galle, Sri Lanka.
The teams last faced off in the ICC Cricket World Cup, 2019, where Sri Lanka defeated the going-to-be World Champions England, in the group stage. Having posted a below-par total of 232, thanks to Angelo Mathews’ 85 not out, Sri Lanka defended one of the lower totals of the tournament, on the back of 4 wickets by Lasith Malinga and contributions from Dhananjaya de Silva, IsuruUdana and Nuwan Pradeep.
England last visited Sri Lanka in 2018, where they had a very great run. England won the 5-match One Day Internationals (ODI) series by 3-1, as one match got abandoned. After that, they won the only T20 International by 30 runs and went on to clean-sweep Sri Lanka 3 to 0 in the longest format of the game.
This article will cover the schedule of the England tour of Sri Lanka, 2021, and also the live streaming platforms for the upcoming series. So, make sure to read it till the end.
