Sri Lankan Cricket Board (SLC) has accepted India's proposal to split their upcoming tour into two halves. The seven one-day internationals will be played in October and the three Tests matches will be held in November-December. India had proposed to play the series in two halves considering the cramped schedule from August this year. The Lankans will be playing a full-fledged series in India for the first time in eight years. Season special India begin the season with a tri-series in Sri Lanka where the West Indies will be the third team from July 30 to August 9. The Indians then tour Zimbabwe from August 24 to September 24 as they compete in another tri-series against the hosts and New Zealand before playing the African nation in two Tests. That will be followed by the ICC Super Series from October 5 to 10, pitting World Champions Australia and a Rest of the World in three ODIs and a six-day Test. On return, India are scheduled to take on the South Africans in five one-day internationals from Nov 17 to 29. (With PTI inputs)
