This November or December is the perfect time to travel to Sri Lanka to support England when they play the seven ‘fun to watch’ One Day International Cricket matches. Sri Lanka’s cricket team have recently returned from playing England in the test series in June where they played for 5 days – England drew one match and lost the other. England will be looking to put out their best squad to beat the Sri Lankans and it should be a great opportunity to look at England’s up and coming talent like Jimmy Taylor and Eoin Morgan before the next Ashes series as well as soaking up the notorious Sri Lankan cricket atmosphere. It is also a last chance for cricket fans to see one of the most astounding cricket partnerships of our generation before they retire – Jayawardene and Sangakara – both incredible batsmen, with classic shots, big totals and an absolute joy to watch.
Matches will take place in Colombo, Hambantota and Kandy, considered some of the most special grounds in the world to visit and providing the perfect mixture of beach and hill country! We can tailor-make your trip to see as much or as little cricket as you would like, while incorporating some of the best experiences and scenery that Sri Lanka has to offer in between the matches. It is also the perfect time of year to see this stunning country.
