NEW DELHI: Sri Lanka will replace Zimbabwe in the Twenty20 series in India in January after the African nation s suspension by the world governing body, officials said.
Zimbabwe was suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in July over a failure to keep the sport free from government interference.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India said Sri Lanka would play a three-match series starting January 5 in Guwahati.
The second Twenty20 match will be played on January 7 in Indore and the third on January 10 in Pune.
Zimbabwe most recently played in the tri-nation Twenty20 tournament in Bangladesh, an event not organised by the ICC.
