Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh 2021: Squads, Schedule, When And Where To Watch

Amid all the excitement surrounding IPL 2021, we shift focus to some international cricket where Sri Lanka will lock horns with Bangladesh. The two Asian sides will face off in a two-match Test series starting from April 21 (Wednesday). It will be their first Test meeting since February 2018.

Meanwhile, the series was scheduled to take place in July 2020. However, the boards agreed to postpone the series amid the growing scare of coronavirus that took the lives of millions across the globe. After postponing it several times, the bilateral series is likely to turn into reality. The two-match series will be a part of the ICC World Test Championship (2019-21). However, it will have no impact as India and New Zealand have already sealed the final berth scheduled to take place in June later this year.
