England will tour Sri Lanka for a seven-match ODI series in November and December.

All seven matches, four of which will be day-nighters, will either be played in in Pallekele, Hambantota or Colombo.

The original schedule had the two teams playing five ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals, but both the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) agreed to convert them into two more ODIs due to the 2015 World Cup coming up.

With the series set to take place right in the middle of Sri Lanka’s monsoon season, SLC have arranged for five of the seven matches to have reserve days.
