Sri Lanka tour of India 2017
Sri Lanka tour of India to kick-off on November 16

The Board of Control for Cricket in India, on Tuesday (October 3), announced the itinerary for Sri Lanka's tour of India later next month.

The tour that comprises of three Tests, three one-dayers and as many Twenty20 Internationals, kicks off on November 16 in Kolkata. Sri Lanka will also play a three-day warm-up match before the first Test in Kolkata.

While the three Tests will be played in Kolkata, Nagpur and Delhi, the One-Day International series will begin on December 10 in Dharamsala, moving to Mohali (December 13) to finish in Vizag on December 17.

The second Test against Sri Lanka will be Nagpur's first since it was given a 'poor' rating by the ICC during the South Africa series in 2015. However, the Nagpur surface had since been relaid and the fifth ODI between India and Australia on October 1 was played there.

The T20Is will be played in the penultimate week of December on alternate days starting December 20 in Cuttack before moving to Indore (December 22) and the culmination of the tour in Mumbai on December 24. Thiruvananthapuram, that had initially been allotted a T20I against Sri Lanka, will instead now host New Zealand for a T20I on November 7. It has swapped fixtures with Cuttack.

Sri Lanka and India had locked horns in a bilateral series not too long ago. Earlier in August-September, India had visited the Island Nation and had swept them across formats.

Itinerary:

Test series:

1st Test - November 16-20, Kolkata

2nd Test - November 24-28, Nagpur

3rd Test - December 2-6, Delhi

One-Day Internationals:

1st ODI - December 10, Dharamsala

2nd ODI - December 13, Mohali

3rd ODI - December 17, Vizag

Twenty20 Internationals:

1st T20I - December 20, Cuttack

2nd T20I - December 22, Indore

3rd T20I - December 24, Mumbai
