England\'s Test team have arrived in Sri Lanka amid stringent coronavirus protocols ahead of the two-match series later this month.
The touring party underwent Covid-19 tests and were sprayed with disinfectant after arriving on a chartered flight at Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport in Hambantota.
England - whose entire touring party tested negative for coronavirus before departure - will now spend 10 days in a bio-secure bubble in Hambantota, although they will be able to train outside as they prepare for the first Test in Galle from January 14.
Both Tests will take place behind closed doors in Galle, with the second game beginning on January 22, after which England will fly to India for a four-Test series against Virat Kohli\'s men.
England\'s series in Sri Lanka was scheduled to take place in March 2020 but was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic while the tourists were amid a warm-up game.
