It will be the first competitive tie in Sri Lanka’s Development squad’s tour of England, and will provide opportunity for Sri Lankan players to gain invaluable match experience in English conditions.

Much like England’s ‘Lions’ side, Sri Lanka’s Development XI aims to produce the next generation of Sri Lankan international cricketers.

Kent and a Sri Lankan representative side have faced-off eight times before, most recently a defeat for the Kent Spitfires at the hands of a full Sri Lanka one-day side in 2014, despite 4-58 from Kent seamer Robbie Joseph.

The Spitfire Ground, St Lawrence will be the first host of a six-match touring schedule for the visitors, who will also take on other counties across May.

Entry to Kent vs. Sri Lanka Development XI will be complimentary to all 2022 Kent Members, and each day’s play will count as one day of the Six Pack and Six Pack Plus Ticket Bundles.

Designated seating will not be in place for this match, so Members will not be required to reserve seats in advance.

Tickets for this match will be available on Tuesday 8 March, when all tickets for Kent Men’s 2022 schedule go on general sale.
