Cricket: India to take on Sri Lanka in Second T-20 International match in Colombo tonight

In Colombo, the second T20 International between India and Sri Lanka scheduled to be played last night was postponed by a day after Indian all-rounder Krunal Pandya tested positive for COVID-19. The entire Team India is undergoing RT-PCR tests today to ascertain any further outbreak in the squad.

The eight members identified as close contacts are said to include Suryakumar Yadav and Prithvi Shaw, who are due to travel to England for next month’s Test series. Since the close contacts are mostly players, India might have to field a depleted side. The second T20 International will be played today while the third and final encounter will take place tomorrow. The match will start at 8 p.m.

India won first T-20 International of the three match series on Sunday. As per Sri Lanka’s health safety protocols, Krunal will not be able to travel back to India with other members of the contingent on 30th of July as he will now have to undergo mandatory isolation and obtain a negative RT-PCR report.
