The schedule of ODI and T20 series between India and Sri Lanka has been changed. Now the first ODI match will be held on 17th July. This change has been made after the arrival of Kovid-19 cases in the home team’s camp. A senior BCCI official told PTI about this – Yes, the series will now start from July 17 instead of July 13. Keeping in mind the safety of the players, this decision was taken in consultation with the SLC.
After the corona cases surfaced in the Sri Lankan team, it has been decided to go ahead with the series. The three-match ODI series, which was to begin on July 13, will now be held from July 17. The Sri Lanka Cricket Board wants the players to stay in the quarantine period for a few more days for their own safety. Sri Lanka’s batting coach Grant Flower and the team’s performance analyst were found to be Corona positive after returning from the tour of England.
According to the earlier schedule, the three-match series between the two teams was to be held from July 13 to 18, followed by a three-match T20 series from July 21 to 25 at the R Premadas Stadium in Colombo.
