Mumbai, Oct 25: Cuttack will host the first of the five One-Day Internationals (ODI) between India and Sri Lanka Nov 2, the Indian cricket board announced Saturday.

The second match will be held at Ahmedabad (Nov 6), to be followed by Hyderabad (Nov 9), Kolkata (Nov 13) and Ranchi (Nov 16). All matches will be day-and-night games.

A practice match will precede the series where the visitors will take on India A Oct 30 at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai.

The series is a replacement of the West Indies tour of India where the visiting side withdrew from the tour last week due to an ongoing pay dispute with the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and the West Indies Players' Association (WIPA).
