Sri Lanka sets sights on success in the ICC World Test Championship Cycle 2023-25

After narrowly missing out on a spot in the 2021-23 ICC World Test Championship Final, Sri Lanka is determined to secure a top-two position in the points table of the new cycle. The 2023-25 World Test Championship kicked off earlier this week with the highly anticipated Ashes series.

Sri Lanka’s journey in the 2023-25 World Test Championship will feature a series of challenging encounters against formidable opponents. Their first home series will be against Pakistan, although the specific schedule is yet to be announced. The two-match series is expected to take place in July, providing an early opportunity for Sri Lanka to make a strong start.


Next on the agenda for Sri Lanka is a tour of Bangladesh in early 2024. This away series will test the team’s mettle, with another two-match contest scheduled for February-March. Sri Lanka will be keen to showcase their skills and secure valuable points on foreign soil.

In August-September 2024, Sri Lanka will make their way to England for a crucial two-match Test series. Facing the formidable English side on their home turf will be a stern test for the Sri Lankan players, but it presents an opportunity to prove their mettle against one of the top-ranked teams in the world.

Upon returning home, Sri Lanka will have the chance to challenge the reigning champions, New Zealand, in September-October 2024. Hosting the inaugural World Test Championship winners will provide an exciting spectacle for fans and an opportunity for Sri Lanka to measure their progress against a strong opponent.

The island nation’s journey in the 2023-25 World Test Championship continues with a tour of South Africa in late 2024. The two-match Test series against the Proteas will be a challenging assignment, with Sri Lanka seeking to showcase their resilience and compete against one of the world’s most formidable teams.

In early 2025, Sri Lanka will host Australia, the reigning champions of the World Test Championship, in a highly anticipated two-Test series. This clash will test Sri Lanka’s skills and determination as they face off against the formidable Australian team, aiming to make their mark against the best in the world.
