Srilanka Cricket Team Captain: The year 2023 is over. Even though there are only one or two days left in this year’s season, there are not many matches left in the meantime. In such a situation, the teams have now started preparing for the next year i.e. 2024. With the beginning of the year, teams will start competing against each other again.
