Sri Lanka hosts Ireland for two Tests

19 March, 2023

Ireland’s tour of Sri Lanka in April will see the countries facing each other in two Test matches as opposed to one Test and two one-day games.

Cricket Ireland agreed to the fixture format change following a request from Sri Lanka.

Ireland’s squad for the Sri Lanka Tests shows a number of changes from the originally announced travelling party.

With seamer Barry McCarthy and Matthew Foster ruled out by injury, pacemen Mark Adair, Fionn Hand and uncapped Tom Mayes have been called up.

The first Test against Sri Lanka starts in Galle on April 16 before a second at the same venue on April 24.
