    Sri Lanka Cricket chief Thilanga Sumathipala calls for more India-Sri Lanka games

    The India-Sri Lanka cricketing contests are a regular affair in international cricket. In the last 10 years, the teams have played 12 Tests, 15 T20s and a staggering 62 ODIs. However, Sri Lanka Cricket president Thilanga Sumathipala wants them to play even more often, drawing a parallel with the Ashes contest between Australia and England.

    “Australia is playing England in the Ashes many times. They play five Tests. So, we feel we should play more with India. They are the No 1 side. Except this tournament, all were bilateral series agreed by the FTP (Future Tours Programme). It sometimes happens that teams play each other frequently while some don’t play for 6-7 years due to FTP pressures,” Sumathipala said at the inauguration of Sri Lanka’s new Brain Centre, for player development, on Monday.

    In the last nine months, India have played Sri Lanka in six Tests, eight ODIs and four T20s. They are currently playing in the Nidahas Trophy T20 tri-series, also involving Bangladesh. On their 2017 tour, India whitewashed Sri Lanka 3-0, 5-0 and 1-0 in the Tests, ODIs and T20s respectively. On Sri Lanka’s visit to India late last year, the visitors lost 0-1, 1-2 and 0-3 across the formats.

    Brain centre needed for Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka Cricket announced the setting up of a Brain Center equipped with cutting-edge technology in analytics and statistics.

    The team’s high performance manager, Simon Willis, said the centre was a necessary tool in player development. “We need a player management system. Whether it is injury management or player workload, we need research and development. We need a system to create fast bowlers in this country. We need to keep a system to monitor pitches, whether they are spinning and whether it is assisting in the development of the player.”

    Revival of SLPL

    Sumathipala said the priority of the Board was to revive the Sri Lanka Premier League and ensure there were no hurdles. “We want to launch this year and are looking at a window for the next few years. SLPL was stopped half-way through the last time and we want to make it commercially viable this time. The dates are August 18 to September 10, which will be followed by the Asia Cup,” he said.

    Please no. We had back to back test & ODI series against them in 2017 and now this Tri-Series. We don't need to play them any more than we actually do. We should actually reduce the amount of cricket we play with SL. I would rather have a series against Bangladesh than playing another one against SL.

    And still they want to play against India. Money has to be the only reason.

    Why just more series?

    Let's create a window, in Feb-March and play for 2 months against them , every year.

    A separate window for SL, just like IPL.

    All I see from this statement is $$$$$$$$ from the SL'an cricket chiefs perspective.

    If we actually timed our series according to the Ashes I dare say we'll be playing less cricket with them than now.

    SLC Chief bats for more India - SL matches

    Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) doesn't seem satisfied with the latest International cricketing affair with India, as its president Thilanga Sumathipala wants to play more cricket with them even though they have contested each other in 12 Tests, 15 T20s, and an astounding 62 ODIs in the last decade.

    Citing an example of Australia-England, who have been playing each other many times as compared to other nations, Sumathipala said 'they should play more with India'.

    As per Hindustan Times, Sumathipala said at the inauguration of Sri Lanka’s new Brain Centre, for player development, “Australia is playing England in the Ashes many times. They play five Tests. So, we feel we should play more with India. They are the No 1 side. Except this tournament, all were bilateral series agreed by the FTP (Future Tours Programme). It sometimes happens that teams play each other frequently while some don’t play for 6-7 years due to FTP pressures.”

    Meanwhile, India and Sri Lanka have played six Tests, eight ODIs, and four T20s in the last nine months, and currently playing in the Nidahas Trophy T20 tri-series, also involving Bangladesh.

    Sumathipala also said that SLC’ main aim is to revive the Sri Lanka Premier League. He signed off by saying, “We want to launch this year and are looking at a window for the next few years. SLPL was stopped half-way through the last time and we want to make it commercially viable this time. The dates are August 18 to September 10, which will be followed by the Asia Cup.”

    I think he is right, we need more of this dross from the Indians and SL. Maybe twice a day, for the next 10 years.

    My dream: a 5 Test and 7 ODI series between India and Sri Lanka every year.

    Then followed by a 3 Test series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka all at Abu Dhabi, preferably on the slowest and flattest pitches possible.
