October 2018 will see England travel to Sri Lanka for a limited overs series. England and Sri Lanka will play five ODIs, one T20I and three Tests in a series scheduled from October 10 to November 27.
Dambulla hosts the first two ODI, with the teams travelling to Kandy to play the next two. The last ODI and the one-off T20I will be played in Colombo before the three Tests, that will be played in Galle, Kandy and Colombo.
After the limited overs series, both teams engage in a three-match Test series starting from November 6. The second Test starts from November 14 with November 23 starting off the final Test.
England will be desperate to improve their record in Sri Lanka having not accomplished much success yet. In the 13 Tests so far, they've lost five and won four while four have ended in draws. They did fairly well and drew the two-Test series last time they toured in 2012.
They dont have a brighter record in ODIs as well, registering just 15 wins in 21 games they have played so far. In their last tour in 2014, they were handed five defeats in the seven-match series.
