CA denies SLC’s bid to hold Tests prior to ODIs.

Cricket Australia has rejected a request from Sri Lanka Cricket to hold Tests before to the white-ball contests in Sri Lanka.

Beginning June 7, the sides will play a 35-day 10-match series consisting of three T20Is, five ODIs, and two Tests in that sequence.

Cricket Australia’s reluctance has left SLC in a bind due to a lack of gasoline and power.

“We will be taking a call in the next few days on how to play the white ball games,” SLC Secretary Mohan de Silva told Cricbuzz, confirming CA’s rejection of its suggestion to stage the Test ahead of time in order to avoid the fuel problem.

The Australian board has not replied to a request for comment, although certain board stakeholders have corroborated this action.

All parties involved have also confirmed that the trip will take place from June 7 to July 12, and that the Tests will be played towards the tail end of the timeframe, as planned.

Australia is scheduled to arrive in Sri Lanka in two weeks. The visit will be Australia’s first to Sri Lanka in six years.

The Australians last visited the island in 2016.
