Will England be victorious in Sri Lanka?

I know this is cliché, but cricket is a religion in Sri Lanka and there’s a huge love for the sport nationwide. On my recent visit to Galle Fort, which overlooks the cricket stadium, I ended up having a chat with some locals. When I mentioned that I was from England, they immediately exclaimed how excited they were to host us in Sri Lanka this year. They love playing England, they said, due to our shared fondness for cricket.

As such, Sri Lanka is an exceptional country to enjoy a cricket holiday in: with some of the world’s most attractive test match venues, cricket-fever in the air, beautiful boutique hotels, diverse wildlife and to-die-for beaches, what could be better?
