Are you ready for the Sri Lanka v England Cricket Tour? The batting of Sanath Jayasuriya, Aravinda de Silva, Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara and Tillakaratne Dilshan backed up by the bowling of Muttiah Muralitharan, Chaminda Vaas, Lasith Malinga, Ajantha Mendis, Rangana Herath, among many other talented cricketers, has underpinned the successes of Sri Lankan cricket in recent years.
Sri Lanka’s national cricket team achieved considerable success beginning in the 1990s, rising from underdog status to winning the Cricket World Cup in 1996. Since then, the team has continued to be a force in international cricket but can they beat the current 1 day and test match sides that England is currently fielding? With the likes of Jos Buttler, Joe Root, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes and Johnny Bairstow to name a few they are hotly tipped to won the 2019 World Cup it seems this team cannot currently be beaten.

Join us, and Matthew Hoggard
Matthew Hoggard MBE is one of the most successful international cricketers to have played for England. He began his professional playing career at his home county of Yorkshire in 1996 and remained there until 2009 when he became Captain for Leicestershire County Cricket Club. Notably Matthew was a key member of England’s bowling attack that helped win the epic 2005 Ashes series and has been a model of consistency throughout his test and ODI career, representing his country on no less than 93 occasions.
In September 2013, Matthew announced his retirement from all forms of cricket, bringing a successful 17-year career to an end. Impressively heralded statically by BBC Sport as England’s Great Test Bowler. Matthew is still very much involved with cricket as a qualified cricket coach and rising star in the media as a cricket pundit for a variety of networks including the BBC, Sky Sports and BT Sport.

We are holding an optional golf day at the Victoria Golf course (ranked as one of the top 100 most beautiful in the world ) for anyone who can play golf regardless of handicap during the 1 day tour with Hoggy heading up the opportunity to play 18 incredible holes.
The golf day is sponsored by Royal and Awesome golf clothing company who have generously offered a winners prize voucher to to be redeemed from their clothing range of trousers or shorts. https://golfsrilanka.com/
It is our intention to hold a golf day at some point on every tour. There will also be one in Colombo after the test.
