A brief background on the cricket history of Sri Lanka vs Australia

The two teams have been playing professional cricket since 1983, beginning with a Test Match which Australia won in Sri Lanka. Since then, Australia visited Sri Lanka in 1992, 1999, 2004, 2011, and 2016 for a series of Test Matches. Similarly, Sri Lanka toured Australia in 1995, 2004, 2007, 2013, and 2019. The Warne-Muralitharan Trophy was introduced in 2007, named after the legendary bowlers of both teams: Shane Warne from the Australian team and Muttiah Muralitharan from the Sri Lankan team.

Out of 31 head-to-head test matches, 8 have been drawn, 19 were won by Australia and 4 were won by Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka and Australia have played a total of 97 ODIs in the past, of which 61 have been won by Australia and 32 by Sri Lanka. From a total of 23 head-to-head T20s, Sri Lanka has won 9, while Australia remains the stronger team with 14 wins.

After six years, Australia will be touring Sri Lanka in June 2022 for a series of T20s, ODIs, and Test Matches, which is going to be an exciting experience for fans of both teams. So, book your tickets in advance and plan your tour of Sri Lanka with the Australian cricket team!
