The Hong Kong and Nepal national cricket teams toured Sri Lanka from 9 November to 3 December 2014.[1][2] The series, hosted by Sri Lanka Cricket, was part of a program organized by the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to benefit non-Test-playing ACC members.

The series was initially planned to feature three Twenty20 Internationals and a List A match between the two teams, along with two three-day matches against a Sri Lanka Cricket XI,[3] with the matches played in Dambulla and Kurunegala[4] However, due to regular rain in Dambulla, the T20I series was shortened and rescheduled to one match, and the List A match moved a day earlier, with both matches being scheduled in Colombo. The T20I match was won by Hong Kong.
