England will play three Tests, five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 international in Sri Lanka in October and November. The winter schedule begins with a five-match ODI series, starting with a day-night game in Dambulla on 10 October. The sole T20 game takes place on 27 October in Colombo, before the Test series begins on 6 November in Galle. The Tests - England's first in Sri Lanka since 2012 - will be held in Galle, Pallekele and Colombo. England drew their last Test series in Sri Lanka 1-1 and traveled again in 2014 for a seven-match one-day series, which the hosts won 5-2.
