England will visit India, after the home team's return from the Asia Cup in Pakistan, for a series of three Tests in March 2006 followed by a seven-match ODI rubber in April.

The dates of the Test series against Lanka, who are currently playing in the seven-match one-day international series against India, have already been declared as Dec 2-6, 10-14 and 18-22 and only the venues have to be finalsed as per the Board's rotation formula.

Shetty said the Board's secretary S K Nair who is the convener of the TPFC meeting would work out a formula.
