Team for Lanka to be chosen on Sunday

Mumbai: The Indian team for the Sri Lankan tour starting later this month would be picked in Mumbai on January 18, according to the Board of Control for Cricket in India.

The tour, featuring five ODIs and a Twenty20 International, has been arranged following the gap in the Indian team's engagements in the wake of the cancelled tour of Pakistan.

The Indian squad, set to reach Sri Lanka on January 26, will play the first two matches of the five-match ODI series at the Rangiri Dambulla International Cricket Stadium (RDICS) at Dumbulla on January 28 and 30.

Colombo's R Premadasa International Cricket stadium (RPICS) will host the third and fourth matches of the series on February 2 and 5, as well as the one-off Twenty20 International on February 10.

The fifth and last ODI is scheduled on February 8 at Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC), also in Colombo.
