Sri Lanka is truly one of the best places in the world for an international cricket tour - that's why we are so thrilled about the England tour of Sri Lanka in March and April 2020. Cricket fans from across England will be heading to Galle and Colombo to witness one of the undisputed highlights of the 2020 cricket calendar. Would you like a piece of the action?
Cricket tours with us, Experience Travel Group (ETG), are a little different to most. Rather than 'Barmy Army' style trips, our cricket tours are for those who love cricket, but would also like to discover Sri Lanka. Our travellers opt for boutique hotels and experiences that reveal the fabric of the destination.
So, what do you need to know about the Sri Lanka Cricket Tour 2020 - and the ETG spin on it?
England will only be playing two tests during the cricket tour to Sri Lanka 2020. These will take place from the 19th – 23rd March in Galle and from the 27th – 31st March in Colombo. While the tickets have not yet gone on general sale, it’s not uncommon for tickets to Sri Lanka vs England cricket tests to be released comparatively late in the calendar. That said, hotels and flights will book up, so you have to act quickly to get the best deal.
Our cricket tours won’t be for those looking to experience cricket in the most low-cost way possible. We don’t aim to compete with the 'Barmy Army' style trips. Our holidays are for those who love cricket but are also curious about Sri Lanka and would like to take the opportunity for a real holiday.
We do have some critical advantages over generic sports companies:
If you would like to get an idea of the sort of holidays we can arrange, get in touch and we will send you some sample packages including costs or talk you through your specific requirements.

While the Sri Lanka v England 2020 dates in Colombo will, of course, be easily accessible from this airport, it’s a few hours to Galle where the first Sri Lanka vs England test will take place. Talk to one of our specialists about the quickest and most enjoyable route to the Galle test.
