New timing for the cricket match: India vs Sri Lanca
SLC has made public a revised schedule list for the upcoming limited streak between India and Sri Lanka. The one-day internationals will now start at 3:00 p.m. instead of 2:30 p.m., and T20Is will start at 8:00 p.m. instead of 7:00 p.m.
The revision of the timings began after the series was delayed for five days due to several COVID-19 cases identified at the host camp. Grant Flower, the Sri Lankan coach tested positive on Thursday, while GT video analyst Niroshan was also tested positive on Friday.
The board asked to give them more time to quarantine and take emergency actions. Of course, this caused a delay.
India and Sri Lanka will meet in three ODI tournaments starting July 18, with the same number of T20I starting July 25. All matches will take place at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. While attendees have been training for the past two weeks in the island nation with their 20-member squad, SLC has not shown its team yet.
The tour will be streamed on Sony TEN 3 HD/SD, Sony SIX HD/SD, and Doordarshan. Fans can also stream the matches on SonyLIV.
During a series preview on Star Sports, Laxman, and Irfan Patan, the former Air Force Indian cricketers selected their Indian players for the ODI XI stage. Laxman commented on the situation like this:
“Well, it’s a very detailed squad, a 20-man squad. But I will go with Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, the No.3 batsman would be Suryakumar Yadav. At No.4 will be Sanju Samson in ODIs, No.5 will be Manish Pandey, at No.6 I will go with Hardik Pandya, No.7 Krunal Pandya. I will have two fast bowlers in Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar and two spinners will be Kuldeep and Chahal. This is my ODI XI.”
Pathan made a change to Laxman’s team selection. He added another batsman to the Indian team, Nitish Rana, stating that Hardik Pandya could take the role of a third pacer. “Only one change I would like, Hardik Pandya is bowling, so I will have him as an all-rounder, one more batsman I will add – Nitish Rana in place of Krunal. Apart from that, because I will like to see Hardik Pandya bowl quite a few numbers of overs,” claimed Pathan.
