The full schedule for India’s tour of Sri Lanka, which is to take place from July to September 2017 and was released on June 20, has been updated by the Sri Lanka Cricket Board. India will play three Tests, five ODIs, and one T20I on the tour. 

Two warm-up games are scheduled on July 21 and 22, just before the first Test in Galle, which starts on July 26. The squads for both the teams are yet to be announced. 

India have won the limited-overs series against West Indies by a comfortable margin of 3-1 and would head to their Asian neighbours after their one-off T20I against the Caribbeans on July 9. Sri Lanka have had their issues regarding the qualification for the ICC World Cup 2019 and will try to push hard against the powerful Indian team.
