Zimbabwe confirm tri-series with India and Sri Lanka

Cricinfo staff

Zimbabwe Cricket has confirmed that India and Sri Lanka will tour the country for a ODI tri-series between May 28 and June 9 this year. Each team plays the other twice before the final at the Harare Sports Club. India will stay back for two Twenty20 matches at the same venue on June 12 and 13.

The announcement follows the postponement of New Zealand's tour of the country over security issues. The tri-series kicks off with the home side taking on India at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo, which will host the first three games.

India last toured the country in 2005 for two Tests and a tri-series, also involving New Zealand. Sri Lanka last toured Zimbabwe in November 2008, sweeping the five-match ODI series. India are also likely to tour Sri Lanka in July and August for a proposed Test series and a tri-series involving New Zealand. The respective cricket boards are yet to finalise a schedule.

    India has always been very supportive of other member countries and this is a wonderful gesture by the BCCI.

    BCCI understands that certain situations like security threats are often planted to defame the host country and the best solution is to play the matches and defeat such people.

    However,aus-eng-NZ are the first one's to jump the ship,no matter how trivial the problem....

    Going to Zimbabwe is fine, but another India-Srilanka series? This is off limits. With all due respect we have played each other too many times. When was the last time West Indies or New Zealand toured India for a full test series?? 2000? 2002? Thats way too long ago. Also, FYI Bangladesh has never played a test in India. BCCI really need to rake care of this imbalance.

    I was disappointed to see Justin Vaughan pull the plug on the tour of Zimbabwe, siting concerns about "security" in the country. However, it will be exciting to see Zimbabwe testing their mettle against some more top class competition in the near future. All the best for Zimbabwe, and I hope to see a return to the days when NZ (and the Windies) were locked in fierce battle with Zim to avoid the test nation's ICC ranking wooden spoon ;)

    another india vs srilanka final which is going to be the 3rd this year!!!!

    it is good to see that INDIA is contributing to bring ZIMBABWE back in the main stream by playing there after new zealand backed out and england banned them from playing the T20 worldcup earlier
