Sri Lanka will play a series against India at home in July. The two teams are scheduled to play three ODIs and one T20 in the series. Sri Lanka’s bilateral series against India is scheduled to end on July 26.
The new format of the tournament ‘The Hundred’ is scheduled to be held in England at the same time. The tournament is scheduled to start on July 21. So naturally, this tournament is going to clash with ‘The Hundred’.
The first edition of the LPL was held from 26 November to 16 December 2021 by creating a bio-safety zone in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. All 23 matches of the five-team tournament were played in Hambantota. Jaffna Stallions won the first title at home.
