Colombo: Zimbabwe cricket authorities have called off a home series against Sri Lanka scheduled to start in October, citing unspecified "challenging issues."

Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement Friday that it has received a letter from the Zimbabwe Cricket Board in which it said the tour should be rescheduled to a "future mutually agreed date."
