Sri Lanka will be the first team to travel to the Caribbean for a men’s tour since Ireland in January 2020.
We are pleased to be able to finally confirm this tour. A number of COVID-19 related logistic hurdles have now been overcome and I want to thank Sri Lankan Cricket President, Shammi Silva and his team, for their co-operation in honoring their obligation to tour under the ICC FTP Agreement,” Cricket West Indies President Ricky Skerritt said in a statement.
