BCCI replaces suspended Zimbabwe with Sri Lanka for T20I series in India

As the ICC decided to discontinue Zimbabwe, it was a significant cost for a trip to India to play the T20I series of three matches next January. BCCI replaced Zimbabwe with Sri Lanka on January 5, 7, and 10.

The BCCI said in a press release that, following the suspension of Zimbabwe, Sri Lanka invited Sri Lanka to participate in the three-game series. Guwahati, Indore and Pune have been confirmed as places for three T20Is.

Under the FTP (Future Tours Program), Zimbabwe was originally scheduled to do one test and three ODIs in India last March, and this tour never happened. Instead, BCCI negotiated a T20I series with Zimbabwe's cricket.

Zimbabwe will also conduct a two-game test series at home in Sri Lanka on FTP next January, but it's not clear if it will go as planned.

The ICC instructed ZC to unconditionally reinstate or terminate its membership in June. The ICC also said it would discuss suspension issues at a quarterly meeting in Dubai in October before making further decisions.

Since suspension, Zimbabwe has had only one tournament to host the recently-bound T20I Tri-series and Bangladesh against Afghanistan.
