MUMBAI (Reuters) - Sri Lanka will tour India in January to play three Twenty20 internationals, replacing suspended Zimbabwe, the Indian cricket board (BCCI) said on Wednesday.
The International Cricket Council, the world governing body of the sport, suspended Zimbabwe in July as the country’s cricket administration was not free from government interference.
“In the wake of Zimbabwe’s suspension by ICC, the BCCI invited Sri Lanka to participate in the three-match series,” BCCI said in a statement.
“Sri Lanka Cricket has confirmed their participation.”
