Sri Lanka's cricket team is preparing to travel to Bangladesh in May 2022 for a bilateral series that would include two test matches. SLC has hired Chris Silverwood, a retired England right-arm pace bowler, as the men's national team's head coach for a two-year contract.

Because the series is part of the ICC World Test Championship, it will have an impact on the points table rankings of both teams.

Bangladesh will be looking to achieve strength from an international series in South Africa, where the Warriors are now facing the Proteas in Durban in the inaugural Test. Considering the World Test Championship, Sri Lanka failed to achieve a win outside the home as they lost both Tests against India but they won both the test matches against West Indies at home.
