Cricket in Sri Lanka
Cricket is the most popular sport in Sri Lanka and is a passion and way of life in every village, town and city across the island. It is one of the ten nations to take part in Test cricket and one of the five nations that has won a Cricket World Cup. As a result, it is no surprise that Sri Lanka is home to some of the greatest cricket players.
Both the young and old have a real love for the sport and strive to follow in the footsteps of their heroes. The ultimate dream is to become the next Jayawardene or Malinga, represent their country and become the next role model for this small tear drop island.
The Sri Lankan sides will not only provide great competition, but will give your team a huge, warm welcome on arrival.However, when not on the cricket field, include cultural and educational experiences with some once in a lifetime excursions and opportunities. As part of our commitment to our social responsibility programme and working alongside Extra Cover, we can offer a unique experience where you can play a huge part in helping some of Sri Lanka’s most disadvantaged school children.
