ESPNcricinfo staff

Nigeria landed in Colombo on Sunday for a nine-day tour during which they will play four Twenty20s. Sri Lanka Cricket said it was hosting the Nigeria national team to "uplift the standard of cricket of the Associate Members of ICC".

The tour by Nigeria comes three months after Kenya had played seven Twenty20s in Sri Lanka. The opposition for Kenya had been a strong Sri Lanka A team which included the likes of Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanne and Shaminda Eranga.

Over the last month, Sri Lanka had also hosted Afghanistan's training camp for the Asia Cup.
