Fixtures confirmed for Sri Lanka ODIs in India

The fixtures for the five-match ODI series between Sri Lanka and India next month have been confirmed, with the matches spread around India and ending in Ranchi.

Sri Lanka stepped in to fill the void left by the West Indies, who pulled out of their tour to India due to a salary dispute, in the middle of the action, thus leaving a gap where the Tests would have been.

Sri Lanka said they would make up the shortfall, as long as they got a reciprocal tour at a later date. The BCCI, meanwhile, are considering legal action against the WICB for loss of revenue.

The first game will be in Cuttack, where the one-off T20 against the West Indies was set to be played, while Eden Gardens should have hosted the fifth ODI (they left after the fourth one) and so keep their fixture.
