It has been a tough year for people in Sri Lanka. The economic crisis in the country hasn't made it easy for anyone to get by. Widespread protests have been seen throughout the country, with people marching towards the President's home and taking it over in an act of protest against the ongoing crisis in the country.
International cricket is still happening in Sri lanka, though. They hosted Australia recently and are now playing Pakistan at home once again.
