Sri Lanka is scheduled to play two Test matches, three One-Day Internationals and a Twenty20 encounter during the six-week tour.

The Chandimal-led team will kick-start the tour tomorrow, with a game against the New Zealand XI in a three-day match in Napier.

Speaking to media captain Dinesh Chandimal said, “The weather is really difficult, You know, in Sri Lanka, we get 30-35 every day so it’s really challenging.”

Sri Lanka was rugged up at a sunny Napier today as they acclimatised to the chilly New Zealand conditions.

Sri Lanka left for New Zealand after their 3-0 series whitewash at home by England last month.

The opening game of the two-match Test series will get underway from 15th of this month in Wellington.
