England v Sri Lanka Hospitality – Test Match 2024 – Old Trafford Packages
England is set to welcome Sri Lanka to Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground when these two nations go head to head in the first Test of the series from Wednesday, 21st, to Sunday, 25th August 2024. The two countries met in international cricket for the first time in 1982 in two ODIs and a test match.
Following a second and final ODI on 14th February 1982, the ODI series ended 1 – 1. In the Test Match, England won by seven wickets.
Fast forward to 2018, and England was again on tour in Sri Lanka. This tour produced one of the many memorable moments that have taken place over the years between these two legendary cricketing nations. In 2018, England faced Sri Lanka in a Test Match, winning the first by a margin of 211 runs.
This was followed up by a 57-run victory in the second Test. This made it 2 – 0 to England, and not only had they won the series, they now had the opportunity to complete a 3 – 0 whitewash. This is precisely what came to pass, as the Three Lions won by 42 runs in the third and final Test.
It was an emphatic test series victory for England, and it was also revenge for their defeat against Sri Lanka in 2014.
England have won the last 3 Test Series in a row against Sri Lanka between 2016 and their most recent encounter in 2021, where a 2-0 victory was secured. The first Test was won by seven wickets before the second and final Test was won by six wickets.
These two nations have met in a Test Match at Old Trafford once before in June 2002. It was the third and final Test, where England secured a 2 – 0 Test Series victory after winning by ten wickets.
Alastair Cook has scored the most runs for England in Test Cricket with 12,472 runs from 26,562 balls faced. Cook achieved this feat over the course of 161 matches and 291 innings between 2006 and 2018. Joe Root is a close second with 11,416 runs scored from 20,113 balls.
Ben Stokes is England’s current Test Captain after succeeding Joe Root back in April 2022, and he will be looking to lead his team to yet another Test Match Series victory against Sri Lanka.
