Sri Lanka revise India tour schedule

Colombo: BCCI and Srilankan Cricket Board have decided to change the venues of the upcoming one-day series in Sri Lanka. The central town of Dambulla will host just one match instead of two during India's upcoming tour of Sri Lanka.

Dambulla, which was due to hold the first two matches of the five-match ODI series, will now host only the opening game on January 28.

The remaining four matches and a Twenty20 international will be played in Colombo during the brief tour, which ends on February 10.

The first and fifth ODI will be day games, while the other matches will be played under lights.

The series was finalised to partly fill the gap created by India's cancelled tour of Pakistan in January-February following the Mumbai attacks in November.

India last toured Sri Lanka in July-August of 2008, losing the Tests 2-1 before winning the ODI series 3-2.

Revised schedule:

Jan 28: First ODI, Dambulla

Jan 31: Second ODI, Premadasa stadium, Colombo (Day/Night)

Feb 3: Third ODI, Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (Day/Night)

Feb 5: Fourth ODI, Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (Day/Night)

Feb 8: Fifth ODI, Sinhalese Sports Club, Colombo

Feb 10: Twenty20 international, Premadasa Stadium, Colombo (Day/Night)
