India's Sri Lanka tour dates released

India's Sri Lanka tour dates released

India will play five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 game in its 17-day tour of Sri Lanka later this month, the cricket board said Thursday.
The first two one-day internationals will be played at Rangiri Dambulla Stadium in central Sri Lanka while the rest of the matches will be played in Colombo, according to an itinerary released by the board.
The tour was finalized earlier this week to make up for India's canceled visit to Pakistan this month. That tour was called off in the wake of the Mumbai terrorist attacks in November in which at least 164 people died.
After the canceling its tour to Pakistan, the Indian cricket board is seeking more fixtures for its team as its commercial revenue is linked to the number of games it plays.
An extra test and Twenty20 match have been added to the itinerary for its tour to New Zealand in March.
Sri Lanka has already agreed to play three one-day internationals with Pakistan starting Jan. 21, and will play two tests later in February _ to fill the gap created by India's cancellation of its tour.
The schedule:
1st ODI- Jan.28 Dambulla
2nd ODI- Jan.30 Dambulla
3rd ODI- Feb.2 Colombo
4th ODI- Feb.5 Colombo
5th ODI- Feb.8 Colombo
T20 International- Feb.10 Colombo
