Sri Lanka vs England Test series – when and where
The three Test series in Sri Lanka sees the England cricket team trying to discover some form leading in to Ashes year. Each match starts at 10.30am local time – so 4.30am GMT – and the dates of the matches are as follows:
1st Test: November 6-10 at Galle
2nd Test: November 14-18 at Pallekele
3rd Test: November 23-27 at Colombo
Let’s face it – every Test match that England cricket team now plays before next summer feels like the road to the Ashes. Their November schedule sees them travel to Sri Lanka for three Test matches and in this guide we’ll tell you how you can watch Joe Root’s men via a Sri Lanka vs England live stream.
Sri Lanka hasn’t always been a happy hunting ground for England, but they’ll be buoyed by their convincing win in October’s ODI series. The big story in terms of the Tests is that it will be the first series without Alastair Cook marching out to open for 14-and-a-half-years. The pressure will therefore be on his debutant replacement Rory Burns who will be desperate to convert his excellent county form into Test brilliance.
Other decisions for the selectors to make will be who they’ll have keep wicket with Jonny Bairstow missing, and whether or not Moeen Ali will bat at number three. While Sri Lanka will be quietly confident after dispatching the last Test side that came to visit – the mighty South Africans. Captain Dinesh Chandimal and star man Angelo Mathews will surely be integral to any success the hosts may have.
It’s all poised to be a fascinating cricket Test series. So make sure you follow the instructions below to live stream the matches between Sri Lanka and England, wherever you are in the world.
