COLOMBO, Nov 29 (SLC) - The Sri Lanka National Team will commence its 2024 international cricket calendar with a home series against Zimbabwe in January, which will consist of three ODIs and three T20i series. 

It would be followed by a series against Afghanistan during the January–February period, consisting of one test match, three ODIs, and three T20Is. 

Then, the Sri Lanka national team will head to Bangladesh for an all-format tour before heading to the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024, which will be played in West Indies and USA. 

India, New Zealand, and the West Indies are also expected to arrive in the country for tours under the FTP during 2024. 

The National Team will play England in a three match test series in England during mid-year, while the 2024 season will end with tours to South Africa and New Zealand. 

‘’We are heading into a highly exciting year with a lot of international cricket to be played, which augurs well for us, as our team will be engaged in competitive cricket year around," said Mr. Ashley De Silva, CEO of Sri Lanka Cricket. 

"The 2024 calendar is expected to give our players a lot of playing opportunities, fans entertainment, and our sponsors great exposure,'' added De Silva.

    After the limited over series against India, to play tests in England. So, before the test series, there must be some enough space for getting adjusted physiologically and technically, for a vital test series as such. The ideal thing is to postpone the limited-over series to later part of 2025 to suit India and a have super first-class tournament in preparation for the England series as it is so vital.

    The suspension does not prevent the tours. Due to the suspension it is unlikely for SLC to receive any money from ICC. How the players will be paid is a mystery

    Wonder the team will expected the spectators to consider them as young/inexperience even at the end of 2024 and the selectors to justify the same in front of media.
