Sri lanka - Future Tour Programs
The highest governing body of the game i.e. the International Cricket Council prepares a schedule for the test playing countries according to which all of them have to play at least two bilateral series (One at home and one away) against each other over a period of 10 years. That schedule is called Future Tour Program or FTP in short. Two is the minimum number. If the boards of the countries reach an agreement, they can play more than two bilateral series as well in 10 years, but, they need to play at least two.
Here we have made available the FTP schedule of each and every test playing nation for you. We have got a dropdown bar below. You just have to pick the country of your choice from that dropdown bar and a list will appear in front of you which will have the schedule of the upcoming bilateral series of that country.
Also, as per Cricket FTP issued by the International Cricket Council, if a team doesn’t want to travel to a particular country for a bilateral series due to security reasons, then, by the mutual agreement of the respective boards, that series can be shifted to a neutral venue such as United Arab Emirates or any other country where the facilities are good. Recently, the Pakistan Cricket Team has played a lot of their home bilateral series on the Emirates soil.
