England will head to Sri Lanka and play seven One-Day Internationals between 29th November and 16th December after the full fixtures were confirmed by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).

The tour, which will provide both sides with useful ODI practice ahead of the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, will begin with two warm-up games for England in Colombo on 21st and 23rd November.

Three venues - the R Premadesa Stadium in Colombo, Pallekele and Hambantota will then be used for the ODI series itself.

All games except the third and seventh matches have a reserve day set aside in case of bad weather.
