Zimbabwe will host Sri Lanka for two test matches to be played in Harare this month, and this represents a return to test cricket for Zimbabwe for the first time since their tour of Bangladesh in November 2018.
The first game at the Harare Sports Club will be played from Jan. 19-23 and the second from Jan. 27-31. Coach Lalchand Rajput had this to say:
Sri Lanka is always a very competitive team who have been playing well and I am looking forward to the Test series.
For us, it’s a new beginning, a new chapter, and it’s good that we are starting off with the long version which always brings the best out of players.
We know our home conditions better, our players are getting match-fit and enjoying some game time. So all we have to do is to get in the middle and perform.
Zimbabwe are not part of the on-going ICC Test Championship and so no points will be up for grabs in the series.
