    SL to Tour India in April

    Sri Lanka will tour India to play five one-day internationals immediately after their rescheduled tour of New Zealand in April, officials said on Thursday.
    Sri Lanka's two-test tour of New Zealand finishes on April 15 and the team will only have a three-day break before travelling to India.

    "The final dates and venues for the tour are now being finalised by the Indian board," a cricket board official confirmed on Thursday.

    The last-minute tour will upset the plans of three players, who had been expected to fly to England in mid-April to play county cricket during the first half of the summer.

    Chaminda Vaas (Worcestershire), Sanath Jayasuriya (Somerset) and Upul Chandana (Gloucestershire) will now not be able start their county season until the first week of May.

    Muttiah Muralitharan is also scheduled to play a third season with Lancashire but he is not expected to regain full fitness in time for the India tour after a shoulder operation in February.

    India at home and coming out of a series with Pakistan should do well against SL with Kumble, Harbajan, Balaji and Pathan in fine form along with V.Sehwag , Sachin and Dravid against SL who rely a lot on Murali especially in the subcontinent !!

    But the question is, are all those you mentioned actually in fine form?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    I think SL will be the faves, as it is an ODI series. Even if it were a test series, I would still think both teams would be even. SL has a knack of doing well against India. I hope it changes this time. Question is will Sourav be in the captain for this series?
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    The Indians have better chances against that disorganised, inconsistent, collapse-prone PAK side than they do against SL, though SL are not as potentially dangerous as PAK.

    Hope not, and hopefully he shouldn't even make the 14.

    There better be.

    Is Sachin really in form? I don't know...apart from his last two innings, he hasn't done much this year.
