Since securing Test Status in 1983 Sri Lanka Cricket has emerged as one of the leading cricketing nations of the world. Sri Lanka holds the distinction of winning its first test match within the shortest time for any country since obtaining test status. To the bewildering of many critics, Sri Lanka won the ICC World Cup in 1996 after delivering an entertaining performance that captured the attention of the cricketing spectators and audiences the world over. That victory which won fame, respect and glory for Sri Lanka ushered Sri Lanka Cricket into its present status with many victories in the fold and earning celebrity status for the game, now played in every street, field and open space in the country.
In the next few years Sri Lanka Cricket will host several international teams and tournaments and undertake several international reciprocal tours and tournaments. The Sri Lanka Cricket Team has already confirmed participation in many Test, ODI and Triangular ODI series to be held both in Sri Lanka as well as in overseas venues. These games will be played in addition to the next ICC Champions Trophy and World Cup Tournament.
