West Indies to tour Sri Lanka

West Indies Men’s team will take on Sri Lanka in a white-ball series for the first time in four and a half years when they arrive in the South Asian country in February for five limited overs matches.

The regional team will take on the hosts in three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and two Twenty20 Internationals, from Feb. 22 to March 6.

The series gets underway with the opening One-Day International in Hambantos on Feb. 26 and will play the final match carded for Kandy on March 1.

Both Twenty20s will also be played at the same venue on March 4 and 6.

Sri Lanka dominated the last ODI series in their country in a 3-0 whitewash while the two-match Twenty20 series ended in a 1-1 tie.

When the two teams last met during last year’s ICC 50-over World Cup in England, Sri Lanka came away with a 23-run victory at Chester-le-Street.

West Indies team has won just 10 of their 21 matches last year and Sri Lanka, seven of their 21 matches during the same period.
