Due to abrupt cancellation of the current India tour by the WICB, BCCI decided to initiate legal proceedings against West Indies Cricket Board and suspended all bilateral tours between the two nations.
BCCI approached the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) and quickly patched together a five-match ODI series to be played from November 1 to 14. The venues for the 5 ODIs against Sri Lanka will be Cuttack, Hyderabad, Ranchi, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.
BCCI also selected team for the first three ODIs against Sri Lanka. Virat Kohli will lead the India, in the absence of MS Dhoni.
