The Bangladesh national cricket team toured Sri Lanka from March 2017 to April 2017. The tour consisted of a series of two Test matches, three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and two Twenty20 internationals (T20Is).[1][2][3] The second Test match of the tour was the 100th Test played by Bangladesh.[4] The tour also featured a two-day warm-up match ahead of the Test fixtures and a one-day warm-up match ahead of the ODIs.[5] The Test series was played for the Joy Bangla Cup in honour of the father of the Bangladesh nation, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman.[6]

Before the series, Sri Lanka's captain Angelo Mathews was ruled out of the Test matches with a hamstring injury.[7] Rangana Herath was named as captain in his place.[8] Mathews failed to recover in time for the ODI and T20I series, with Upul Tharanga named captain of the team for both formats.[9]

The Test series was drawn 1–1,[10] with Bangladesh winning the second match by 4 wickets. It was their first win against Sri Lanka in a Test match.[11] The victory was their ninth win in Tests and their fourth overseas.[12] The ODI series was drawn 1–1, with the second of the third match ending in a no result, due to rain.[13] The T20I series also finished 1–1.[14]

After the conclusion of the ODI series, Bangladesh's captain, Mashrafe Mortaza, was suspended for one match for maintaining a slow over-rate in the third game.[15] Therefore, he did not play in Bangladesh's first fixture of the 2017 Ireland Tri-Nation Series in May 2017.[15] During the coin toss of the first T20I, Mashrafe announced his retirement from T20Is following the conclusion of the series.[16]

Bangladesh's captain Mushfiqur Rahim was asked to play as a batsman only, with Liton Das becoming the wicket-keeper for the Test series.[22] However, Das suffered a fractured rib during training ahead of the second Test, with Mushfiqur Rahim returning as the wicket-keeper for the final Test.[23] Kusal Perera was ruled out of Sri Lanka's squad for the first two ODI matches, but he was expected to be fit for the third and final match.[24] Mehedi Hasan was added to Bangladesh's ODI squad before the start of the limited-overs series.[25] Niroshan Dickwella suffered a fracture to his hand in the first ODI and was ruled out of the rest of the series.[26] Dilruwan Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara and Nuwan Pradeep were all added to Sri Lanka's ODI squad.[26] Kusal Perera was included in Sri Lanka's T20I squad, subject to fitness, with Sandun Weerakkody added as cover, if needed.[20]
