India’s Request For Practice Denied By Sri Lankan Board
The Indian white-ball team has arrived in Mumbai, and each player is currently being quarantined.
Teams Led By Shikhar Dhawan Will Play Three Games
In preparation for the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka, India’s team, led by Shikhar Dhawan, will play three intra-squad games in Colombo.
“Team India”s limited-overs squad for the Sri Lanka series has assembled in Mumbai. Good to see some new and happy faces in the squad,” tweeted BCCI.
“The Indians wanted to play some warm-up games against the ”A” team or a team that could be arranged, but the COVID-19 protocols made that a little difficult and that is when a request went to BCCI to play intra-squad games. So, the Indian team will now play one T20 game and two one-day games to prepare for the limited-overs series,”
