New Zealand are currently preparing to face Sri Lanka in a two-match Test series which will be followed by three T20Is.

After a disheartening loss in the 2019 World Cup final, the Kiwis will be looking to bounce back when they take on Sri Lanka. Keeping in mind the conditions that are expected to be on offer, the New Zealand selectors have named four spinners in their touring brigade, with Todd Astle, Ajaz Patel, William Somerville and Mitchell Santner making the cut.


Sri Lanka, on the other hand, enter this series on the back of an astounding show against Bangladesh. The Lankans secured a comfortable clean sweep of the visitors and will be high on confidence ahead of the New Zealand series.

Moreover, they will be buoyed by the return of experienced heads Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal, who have both been named in the squad.

Tickets and Pricing

As per an SLC release, prices for the Tests have been fixed between LKR 300 (Open Area/Mound) to LKR 4000 (Stands) per day. On the other hand, those who wish to catch the T20I action will have to pay between LKR 500 and LKR 4000.

How to buy tickets?

Tickets can be purchased at the match venues as well as by visiting the “cricket.lk” and “lk.bookmyshow.com" websites.
