The Tours Programmes and Fixtures Committee of the Indian Cricket Board will meet on October 29 to finalise the dates and venues of the forthcoming six Tests, three each against Sri Lanka and England. The Committee will also decide the schedule of the seven one-day internationals against England. The meeting, to be chaired by BCCI vice-president Kamal Morarka, would be held in Delhi, Board's Executive Secretary-in-charge Ratnakar Shetty, said today. The three Tests against Sri Lanka would be played between December 2 and 22, while England are set to visit India in February 2006 for a series of three Tests in March followed by the seven-match ODI rubber in April. The dates of the Test series against Lanka, who are currently playing in the seven-match one-day international series against India, have already been declared. Only the venues have to be finalsed as per the Board's rotation formula. Shetty said the formula would be worked out by the Board's Secretary S K Nair, who is the convener of the Fixtures Committee meeting. (PTI)
