New Zealand and Sri Lanka will play a Twenty20 cricket series in Florida next month, marking the first time two elite international teams have played each other in the U.S.
The three-match series in the sport’s newest and shortest format will take place May 20-23 in Lauderhill, Florida, New Zealand Cricket said today in an e-mailed statement.
It will be the first contest between so-called full members of the International Cricket Council in the U.S., New Zealand Cricket said, adding that it hopes to play matches in the U.S. on an annual basis after entering a stategic partnership with USA Cricket.
