The 1st Test match between England and Sri Lanka will be played from January 14 to January 18, 2021 at Galle International Stadium, Galle; the game starts at 10:00 AM IST.
England is currently one of the best test teams in the world but how well they will fair on dusty slow Galle pitch will be interesting to see. Galle ground is known to assist spinners. We have seen spinners taking all 20 wickets there. It will be tough task for pacers to get something out of this pitch. It is expected to get slower as the match goes on and will be unplayable on day 4 and 5. Whoever wins the toss will look to bat first and score as many runs as possible and win the match.
