The India National Team tour of Sri Lanka has been postponed indefinitely due to the current global health crisis sweeping across the world.
The limited over series of three ODIs and as much T20s was scheduled to be held later this month. This is the third series that got postponed following the pandemic outbreak. Earlier Sri Lanka postponed a Test series against England and a limited over series against South Africa. Sri Lanka’s next assignment will be against Bangladesh but that too remains in doubt.
” The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) informed Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) that due to the prevailing circumstances revolving around Covid – 19 pandemic, the cricket series, which included 03 ODIs and 03 T20i matches will not be feasible,” SLC said in a statement.
“Although, BCCI remains committed to the FTP and towards its fellow members, it will have to seek the advice from Government of India and the health regulatory authorities before taking any decision for the resumption of cricket,” stated BCCI in a communication sent to SLC.
