India's previous visit to Sri Lanka was in March 2018, when they took part in the ‘Nidahas Trophy’ Tri-Nation contest.

I am confident this series is going to attract the attention of the cricketing world,  as both teams, which have excelled in the shorter formats of the game, plays an exciting brand of cricket, thus bringing joy to the fans,‘ said Mr. Ashley De Silva, CEO of Sri Lanka Cricket.

The contest is also going to play a vital part in Sri Lanka teams ongoing preparations aiming at the 2023 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup and also the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, scheduled to take place later this year.

The tour will be held under a Bio-Secure Environment.
