The India cricket team toured Sri Lanka between July and September 2017 to play three Test matches, five One Day Internationals (ODIs) and a Twenty20 International match.[1][2][3] Ahead of the Test series, the teams played a two-day warm-up match in Colombo.[4][5][6]

Dinesh Chandimal was appointed the new Test captain of Sri Lanka following Sri Lanka's ODI defeat to Zimbabwe earlier in the month.[7] However, before the first Test, Chandimal contracted pneumonia, ruling him out of the match.[8] Rangana Herath was later confirmed as captain of the side for the first Test.[9] Chandimal returned to the squad as captain for the second Test.[10] India won the Test series 3–0. It was India's first whitewash away from home in a series of three Tests or more.[11] It was also the first time they had won three Tests in an away series since beating New Zealand 3–1 in 1967–68.[12]

The second ODI of the series in Pallekele was Sri Lanka's 800th ODI match.[13] India won the first three ODIs, therefore winning the series, and was their eighth consecutive ODI series win against Sri Lanka.[14] This defeat, along with previous defeats against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, prompted the Sri Lanka selection committee to resign.[15] India went on to win the ODI series 5–0 and was the first time Sri Lanka had suffered a whitewash at home in ODIs.[16] India won the one-off T20I match by 7 wickets,[17] thus completing a 9-0 clean sweep against Sri Lanka in all three formats of international cricket in a bilateral series.[18]

Murali Vijay was ruled out of India's Test squad before the series began with a wrist injury and was replaced by Shikhar Dhawan.[24] Asela Gunaratne fractured his thumb on the first morning of the first Test and was ruled out of Sri Lanka's squad for the remaining matches.[25] Lahiru Thirimanne and Lakshan Sandakan were added to Sri Lanka's squad for the second Test.[10] India's Ravindra Jadeja was suspended for the third Test after throwing the ball "in a dangerous manner" during the second match, therefore accumulating enough demerit points to get a suspension.[26] Axar Patel was added to the squad as his replacement.[27] Sri Lanka's Rangana Herath was rested for the third Test at Pallekele after pulling up from the second Test with a stiff back.[28] For the third Test, Dushmantha Chameera and Lahiru Gamage were added to Sri Lanka's squad, while Danushka Gunathilaka was dropped.[29]

For the ODI series, Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne were added to Sri Lanka's squad ahead of the third match.[30] They were added as cover for Danushka Gunathilaka and Upul Tharanga.[30] Tharanga was suspended for the third and fourth ODIs, for a slow over-rate in the second match. Chamara Kapugedera captained the side for the third ODI,[30] but sustained a back injury and was ruled of the remaining matches. Lasith Malinga was given the captaincy for the fourth ODI.[31] In the third ODI, Dinesh Chandimal suffered a hairline fracture to his right thumb and was ruled out of the rest of the series.[32] Dilshan Munaweera was added to Sri Lanka's squad ahead of the fourth ODI.[33]
