This will be England’s second touring assignment since the COVID-19 pandemic threw schedules haywire.
They had travelled to South Africa in November but the tour was called off midway after two members of the visiting party tested positive for the dreaded virus.
After its assignment in Sri Lanka, the England cricket team will head to India for a full series starting with the first Test on February 5.
