According to the original tour itinerary, the teams were supposed to play two four-day matches and three youth ODIs earlier this month, but the tour was rescheduled due to the Easter Sunday attacks last month.

The Sri Lanka team will be led by top order batsman Nipun Dananjaya for the 1st three games and opener Kamil Mishara in the final 2 games. They have been training extensively throughout the last few months as they prepare for a busy season.
