West Indies will host an ODI tri-series against India and Sri Lanka in Jamaica and Trinidad from June 28 to July 11, 2013. It will substitute for Sri Lanka's limited-overs leg of their full tour of the Caribbean, which has been reshaped so that the cricketers from both countries can participate in the IPL.

According to the original FTP schedule, Sri Lanka were due to play two Tests, three ODIs and two Twenty20s in the West Indies. The Twenty20s have been done away with, and the two Tests will be held later at a later date, allowing the players to play the IPL between April 3 and May 26.

The tri-series comprises seven matches, with each team playing the other twice before a final. With Zimbabwe and Pakistan also scheduled to visit the West Indies next year, it will be the first time four international teams will tour the Caribbean in a year (excluding a world tournament).

Too much limited overs cricket. Time to scrap ODIs. They are gradually becoming second fiddle to T20s anyway...and now, Test Cricket (The only REAL cricket), is being pushed out to make way for limited overs cricket...sad state of affairs.

W.Indies are moving in the right direction, and need more tests to continue this development. Lets get D.Johnson in asap...play him, Tino and Roachy, and they will have batsmen hoping all over the place...just like the good old days!!!

So first Australia cancelled Tests against W.I for the coming tour for 5 ODI's and 1 T20 now Sri Lanka to ? How is W.I new found full strength side going to rise as Sammy, Gayle, Samuels and many others have stated they wish t do if no one will play Test cricket against them other than Bangla or Zimbabwe . . .

If SL dont want to play test then leave them out and bring BD for the tri-series with india.Sl knows WI would beat them in test and over take them in ranking why not offer WICB some money by bringing in IND so they would be sure of a large turnout in Trinidad

Why are the national cricket boards allowing IPL to create the agenda for international cricket? Surely, there should be some standard number of international games in each of the three formats, that each major cricket playing nation is required to play. The way it is now, it's just random. There is no rotation of nations, and powerful countries seem to set up schedules purely to suit their conditions. Obviously, tropical guys can't play well in frigid British conditions, Bangladeshis can't get better if hardly anyone is required to play them, and if there is no cricket "season" (basically northern and southern hemisphere summers, then teams will play with broken down, overplayed guys, who really want to go to the big money in IPL anyway.

I guess there is some dictionary in this world which must have a meaning for "humilate" to be read as thrashed by/drubbing..Even a India "B" team will thrash SL team any day..
