Sri Lanka’s first tour outside the subcontinent in 2014 will be of England. It will be a tour of about 4 weeks. The Sri Lanka tour of England 2014 schedule includes 2 T20s, 5 One Day international games and 2 test matches. Both the T20 matches will be played at Kennington Oval, London and then, the action will shift to Chester le Street where the first game of the ODI series will take place. The ODI series will end at Birmingham on 3rd of June. The test series will get underway on 12th of June at Lord’s, London and then, the Sri Lankan team will end their tour at Headingley, Leeds where the second and last test match is scheduled to happen.

The Sri Lankan team had last gone on the tour of England in 2011. Their performance on that tour was not of high standard as they had lost both the test and the ODI series. But, on this tour, they can hope to have much more success as their fast bowling department has strengthened in the last couple of years. Some talented fast bowlers have come through the ranks and they could be lethal on English pitches which offer a lot of seam movement.

The difference between the standard times of Sri Lanka and England is just 4 and half hours. So, it would not be awkward for the Sri Lankan viewers to watch the Sri Lanka tour of England 2014 fixtures.
