General News India to play 3 Tests, 5 ODIs and 1 T20I in Sri Lanka

India will be touring Sri Lanka later this month to play three Tests, five One-Day Internationals and one Twenty20 International, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) announced on Friday (July 7). The 43-day tour begins with a Test match in Galle from July 26, exactly 17 days after India's one-off T20I game against West Indies in Jamaica.

The next two Tests will be played at the SSC in Colombo and Kandy respectively. While Dambulla will host the first ODI on August 20, the teams will return to Kandy for the next two ODIs before travelling back to Colombo where the final two ODIs and the lone T20I will be played at the R. Premadasa Stadium.

The most recent clash involving the two sides came in the Champions Trophy where Sri Lanka won by seven wickets while chasing 322. Despite playing at home, Sri Lanka have a daunting task ahead of them in the Test arena where they are ranked seventh in the world. India are the top-ranked team in the format following a successful home season where they beat New Zealand, England, Bangladesh and Australia. India also won the Test series in Sri Lanka in 2015 by a 2-1 margin.

2nd Test: August 3-7, SSC, Colombo

3rd Test: August 12-16, PICS, Kandy
