Sri Lanka will play two Test matches and five one-day internationals as part of their tour of England next summer.

Lord's and Headingley will host the two Tests in June at the back end of a schedule which begins with Sri Lanka's arrival in the country on May 9.

Two day-night 50-over tour games, at Essex and Kent, are followed by a T20 fixture at Sussex before a one-off T20 international against England at The Oval on May 20.

The south London venue hosts the first of five ODIs two days later, with games Durham, Old Trafford, Lord's and Edgbaston completing the series.

The Sri Lankans will then warm up for the Test series with a four-day tour match against Northamptonshire.

The first Test begins at Lord's on June 12, eight days before the second Test in Leeds.

Sri Lanka, currently captained by Angelo Mathews, last toured England in 2011, losing a three-match Test series 1-0.
