The Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has replied to Sri Lanka’s board of cricket proposal positively saying the series is on between the two nations.
Recently, SLC proposed BCCI to resume the series in summers that priorly got cancelled amid the Coronavirus outbreak. In response, the Indian board has hinted that resuming cricket might be an option. However, they still do concern the health of their players at first rather than organizing the league.
As amidst the Coronavirus outbreak, the boards are suffering from tours, leagues, series, and tournaments cancellation, Sri Lanka vs India also seems to be tough to be organized in summers as the global health crisis, instead of getting better is worsening day by day and with the rising sun, more cases get reported.
Sri Lanka maintained that the tour will be commenced behind closed doors without spectators. According to them, it is going to be the only option to resume cricket and the best possible way to give players ultimate protection at the same time.
If commenced ahead, the two nations will be indulged in three ODI matches and three T20I matches. A six-match series till now is expected between India and Sri Lanka from July.
However, BCCI has clearly stated that if on the side, series is on, on the other side, the government’s leniency and policies will also be considered.
