Big news is coming out of the World Test Championship. The Sri Lanka Cricket Board has announced the squad for the upcoming 2-match Test series against New Zealand on Friday (February 24). The Sri Lanka Board has announced a squad of 17 players. Under the leadership of Dimuth Karunaratne, the Sri Lankan team will begin the Test series against New Zealand from March 9. This series will be very important in terms of the World Test Championship. In fact, apart from India vs Australia, only Sri Lanka remains in the race for a ticket to the final of the World Test Championship. A 2-0 series win for Sri Lanka will boost their hopes of reaching the final.

Sri Lanka Cricket has issued an official statement. It said, “The Sri Lanka Cricket Selection Committee has selected a 17-member Test squad for the 2-match Test series for the 2023 tour of Sri Lanka.”

However, the statistics of the Sri Lankan team have not been special in New Zealand. So far in the 19 matches played in New Zealand, the team has managed to win only 2 times.

Test Series Schedule
The Sri Lankan team will tour New Zealand from March 9 to April 8. Meanwhile, in addition to 2 Tests, the Sri Lanka vs New Zealand team will also play a series of 3 ODIs and 3 T20 matches. The first Test match of the series will be played in Christchurch from March 9 to 13. Also, the second Test match will be played in Wellington from March 17 to March 21.

Australia can be out
Australia are currently trailing 0-2 in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023. Australia’s woes could deepen if they lose the series 0-4. Because, after the clean sweep, the Australian team will have 60 percent of the points in the World Test Championship. Thus, the door will open for Sri Lanka to reach the final for the first time. Sri Lanka have to play the final Test series of the World Test Championship against New Zealand.
