Although the venues for the tour have not yet been announced, and the respective cricket boards have not released the squads, anticipation is already building. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, has been struggling with their form across all formats of cricket. A country once known for its array of match-winning performances is now facing challenges at major events.

 

They were eliminated in the group stage of the World Cup 2023 and managed just one win in the group stage of the T20 World Cup 2024. Additionally, the Sri Lankan cricket board has faced turmoil, with the ICC suspending it temporarily due to allegations of political interference in cricketing affairs.
