Sri Lanka U19 set to tour United Kingdom (UK) to take part in 2 Youth Tests and 3 Youth ODIs.
Sri Lanka U19 team is expected to land in UK on the 14th August 2022 for the month long tour. The islanders will play a 3-day warm-up game from 16th to 18th August prior to the scheduled 2 Youth Tests and 3 Youth ODIs which will begin on the 21st August.
‘’This tour will provide our youngsters an opportunity to experience English conditions, and prepare themselves for bigger international challenges going forward,’ said Jehan Mubarak, Coach of the U19s.
The tour will also be the final U19 tour for most of the youngsters, as they will very soon graduate to the Emerging Category.
Sri Lanka U19 last toured England for 3 Youth ODIs and 2 Youth Tests in 2016. Young Sri Lankans led by Charith Asalanka, emerged victorious in their last visit to England as they defeated the hosts in Youth ODI series 3-0 and Youth Test series 1-0.
In December last year, England U19 toured Sri Lanka for a 5-match Youth ODI series which Sri Lanka U19 won 3-2 under the leadership of Dunith Wellalage.
