Colombo: The Indian cricket team led by Shikhar Dhawan arrives in Sri Lanka for a limited overs cricket series. The tour consists of three ODIs and a T20I. Meanwhile, three Sri Lankan players, including Kushal Mendis, who missed the bio-bubble, may not be included in the series against India.
A team of 20 players including Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, Sanju Samson and Devdutt Padikkal left Mumbai for Colombo. Five net bowlers, including Malayalee Sandeep Warrier, are with the team. The ODIs against Sri Lanka will be played on the 13th, 16th and 18th of next month. The T20 matches will be played on the 21st, 23rd and 25th.
Meanwhile, the crisis in the Sri Lankan team in England is severe. The problem is that Kushal Mendis, Dhanushka Gunathilaka and Niroshan Dickwella went out of control violating the bio-bubble. The Sri Lanka Cricket Board came to know about their video after it was circulated on social media. There are still three ODIs left in the series. England beat Sri Lanka 3-0 in the T20 series.
