Anticipating a tightly contested all-format series in subcontinent conditions, CA CEO Nick Hockley said:

“There is no more challenging place to play cricket than on the subcontinent, and this tour offers our players invaluable experience and another great opportunity to excel on the world stage.”

Mr. Ashley De Silva, CEO of Sri Lanka Cricket said:

“We are in for some exciting cricket, especially considering that an Australian tour to Sri Lanka is taking place after 5 years, since last time they toured Sri Lanka.’’

The five-time ODI world champions endured a humiliating 3-0 whitewash during their last Test series in Sri Lanka. They, however, swept the white ball leg of the tour, winning the T20I and ODI series 2-0 and 4-1 respectively.
