Sri Lanka  has accepted to play in ODI series in India after West Indies dropped out of current tour owing to pay dispute.

The West Indies tour to India has been called off suddenly due to the ongoing payment structure dispute with the West Indies Cricket Board and its players association.

Sri Lanka Cricket has agreed “in principle” to a series of five ODIs in November. West Indies decided to pull out of the tour after Friday’s fourth ODI against India in Dharamsala.

“In principle we have agreed to accept India’s invitation to play five one-day internationals,” Sri Lanka Cricket secretary Nishantha Ranatunga confirmed on Friday.

Ranatunga stated that the five ODIs would be played between November 1 and 15 and that a final itinerary was awaited from the BCCI. He said the decision to accept India’s invitation was taken after consultation with the Sri Lankan coaching staff and the national selectors. It will be Sri Lanka’s first tour to India in almost five years.
