There are already three series lined up for the Indian team in next few months but still, BCCI is keen to adjust two more series later this year.

Sri Lanka and New Zealand have been invited by the Indian Board to tour the country for respective bilateral series and as per the reports, Sri Lankan Cricket Board has given a green signal to send its team to India later this year.

It is to be noted that India is set to tour Sri Lanka in the month of July/September for a full-fledged series comprising of three Tests, five ODIs and one T20I.

New Zeland Cricket though hasn’t confirmed anything regarding the tour but it is expected that they will also agree to the invitation of the cricket’s apex body in India. This will their second tour to the sub-continent nation in successive years.

The decision to invite Sri Lanka and New Zealand have been taken by the board after Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) did not accept BCCI’s decision to send its team for a scheduled tri-series with New Zealand as the third team. BCCI decided to drop the idea of organising a tri-series idea and invited the aforementioned nations for a separate bilateral series.

It is going to be an action-packed season for India, as after coming back from Sri Lanka, the finalist of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 will face Australia in an ODI series followed by series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand. A long tour of South Africa will follow but there are reports that BCCI might curtail that tour, just as they did in the year 2013.

Meanwhile, with the withdrawal of Australia A from the tour to South Africa, has now raised concerns over the tri-series which has India A and South Africa A as other two teams. Though we might see South Africa announcing one more team to replace Australia A – for tri-series- so as to let the series go as planned.
