Sri Lanka currently sits fifth on the World Test Championship points table, having won two of the four Tests they've played this cycle. They defeated the West Indies 2-0 at home before losing 2-0 to India away from home.

Bangladesh is ninth in the standings, having won only one of their four games.

The Lankans have an advantage over Bangladesh, having lost only once in 22 Tests. The series was originally scheduled to take place between October and November 2020, but it was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Later, in May 2021, Sri Lanka visited Bangladesh but only played a three-match ODI series.
