A school cricket tour to Sri Lanka will allow your team to experience their sport in a country with a real passion for it. Sri Lankans have been playing cricket since the early 19th century, when the British brought the game over.

During the 1990s Sri Lanka transformed itself into a real powerhouse of international cricket. One of just ten teams to play Test cricket and one of five teams to have won a World Cup, Sri Lanka most recently won the ICC World Twenty20 in 2014.

Your school cricket tour to Sri Lanka will include the opportunity to play friendly fixtures at exclusive venues. And you'll have the chance to try your hand at adventure sports such as white water rafting. Of course, you’ll also have a chance to explore the culture and sights of this ancient country.
