Srilanka set to tour India
Sri Lanka have confirmed as the team to tour India for this month’s series and agreed to play 5ODIs from November 1 to 15 and fill the void created by West Indies after pulling off the tour due to payment issues.
Fourth ODI played at the HPCA Stadium in Dharmasala on Friday was the last of the series leaving behind 1ODI, 1T20I and 3 Tests.
This will be Sri Lanka‘s first tour to India in almost five years. The venues will be most probably the ones which have been left out of the IND-WI series.
