In the Australia tour of Sri Lanka 2022, both teams are scheduled to play 3 match T20I series, 5 match ODI series, and 2 match Test series.
Australia has already won the 3-match T20I series by winning the first two matches and will look to whitewash the hosting team by winning the third and final T20I match which is scheduled to play on June 11.
Dasun Shanaka has been named as the captain of the Sri Lanka cricket team to play the ODI series which will be a part of the Cricket World Cup Super League.
Uncapped left-arm spinner Dunith Wellalage was also named in the 21-member squad led by Dasun Shanaka. Opener Pathum Nissanka too has returned to the ODI squad after having missed out on the Bangladesh and India Tests with a back injury.
