Colombo:

West Indies cricket team will visit Sri Lanka later this month for three one-day international matches to make up for a washed out five-match series last year, cricket authorities said on Sunday.

Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement that the newly built Suriyawewa stadium in the southern Hambantota district will host the first match on January 31.

Other two matches will be played at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on February 4 and 6.

The matches will give valuable practice for both sides with the cricket World Cup scheduled to start February 19, co-hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

Both teams drew a three-match Test series last year amid bad weather and the limited-overs series was postponed.
