The Sri Lankan team had agreed to tour India after West Indies pulled out of their India tour after the fourth ODI in Dharamsala. However some senior players including Kumar Sangakara were not happy with the Sri Lankan board’s decision. The BCCI have in return agreed to tour Sri Lanka in July-August 2015, were in previously Sri Lanka was scheduled to tour India next year but the BCCI accepted SLC’s proposal of swapping countries for that trip.

Cuttack will host the first ODI between India and Sri Lanka on November 2 while Ranchi will host the fifth and final game on November 16, according to the schedule released by Sri Lanka Cricket.

Ahmedabad, Hyderabad and Kolkata will host the second, third and fourth ODIs respectively on November 6, 9 and 13. The Sri Lanka team will begin their tour in Mumbai on October 30 which will be a  practice game against India A at Brabourne Stadium. They will be back in Colombo on November 18.

Cuttack was earlier  scheduled to host the only T20 international against West Indies while Kolkata had been allotted the fifth ODI to celebrate 150 years of Eden Gardens. Hyderabad, Bangalore and Ahmedabad were to host the three Tests against West Indies. BCCI has different  rotation methods for allotting a test ODI and T20. So, while two of those Test venues were accommodated with an ODI each against Sri Lanka, Ranchi was given preferance over Bangalore for the remaining slot. It was expected that Ranchi would have hosted the 4th or the 5th Odi as MSD was rested for the first 3 ODI’s

The tour is as follows:



2nd November


6th November


9th November


13th November


16th November
