India and Bangladesh to Tour Sri Lanka for T20 Tri-Series

India beating Pakistan – both in cricket and hockey – has become a boringly regular feature.

India will be touring Sri Lanka in March, 2018 to play a tri-nation T20 tournament, which will also involve Bangladesh.

Sri Lanka are scheduled to play 3 Tests, 5 ODIs and 2 T20 Internationals in India next year. Some of the ODI matches will likely be transformed to T20 fixtures.

Bangladesh is reportedly unhappy with the ICC’s move to review full membership status, which could also harm their prospects in the long run.

During a meeting of the top board officials in Colombo on the occasion of Bangladesh's historic 100th Test match, BCCI CEO Rahul Johri is believed to have had discussions with Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) supremo Nazmul Hasan Papon and SLC chief Thilanga Sumathipala.

“The [SLC] technical committee and cricket committee is looking into it, but at the moment we would like it to be a T20 triangular - that’s what the agreement is,” SLC president Thilanga Sumathipala told ESPN Cricinfo.

"We made this appeal to India in about June or May last year," he said.

"India were here during the Asian Cricket Council opening ceremony, so we discussed this - it's been going on for seven to eight months. So this has nothing to do with the ICC board meeting that happened in February. Our stand has been very clear," he said.
