New set of dates for ODIs and T20Is yet to be announced officially

India’s limited-overs series against Sri Lanka has been pushed back by five days from its original schedule, with BCCI secretary Jay Shah confirming to ANI that the series is set to begin “by July 18”.

According to PTI, the three ODIs will now be held on July 18, 20 and 23 at the Premadasa Stadium followed by the T20Is, starting on July 25.

The Covid-19 cases in the Sri Lankan camp is the reason for the postponement. On Friday, SLC had proposed a new schedule to the BCCI, that had the ODIs rescheduled to July 17, 19 and 21, with the T20I leg starting on July 24. The boards haven’t made an official announcement yet.

SLC has put together two squads, one group isolating in Colombo and another in Dambulla, as part of their contingency measure to ensure the series goes ahead.
