Sri Lanka cricket team will tour West Indies in May-June next year. The itinerary was announced by the WICB yesterday (04).


Sri Lanka will play a Test at the iconic Kensington Oval in Barbados for the first time during this 3-match tour.


Barbados will host the second Test of the series, from June 14-18.


The tour, which had been put down in the Future Tours Programme, will be Sri Lanka's first Test tour of the West Indies in ten years.


The last time both sides played a Test series in the Caribbean - in March 2008 - the series ended in a draw at 1 all.


It was a memorable tour for the visitors as they won in the West Indies for the first time.


Overall, this will be the fourth Test series between the two sides in the West Indies.
