Cuttack will host the opening India-Sri Lanka One-Day International on 2nd November before the series moves on to Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Ranchi.

The Indian board (BCCI) has confirmed that the matches will be played on 2nd, 6th, 9th, 13th and 16th November.

Sri Lanka are touring India after the West Indies withdrew from their tour earlier this month.

All five games will be day/night clashes.

Virat Kohli will lead India for the first three One-Day Internationals after MS Dhoni was rested but India's regular captain is expected to return for the final two games, including the fifth ODI at his home ground of Ranchi.
