Sri Lanka March 2020 Cricket Tour

06-12-2019: The Cricket Societies Association have sent us details of a March 2020 cricket tour to Sri Lanka to see the forthcoming England 2-match Test Series.   Available to Cricket Society members, the tour dates are from 17th March to the 2nd April.

An additional point of interest to Essex cricket followers is that the tour coincides with the County Championship curtain-raiser match between Essex and the MCC at the Galle International Stadium between the 24th to 27th March, which immediately follows the 1st Test which is scheduled to finish on the 23rd at the same ground.

Full details of the cricket tour are available from the flyer which is available to download from this website - click here.

Those members that intend to make enquiries about the tour are asked to mention the Cricket Society when they do.
