India Tour To Sri Lanka Postponed Due To Coronavirus

Mumbai: India’s tour to Sri Lanka has been postponed as the coronavirus pandemic.

The men in blue were expected to play three ODIs and an equal number of T20Is for the Sri Lanka tour later this month.

A BCCI official said told ANI, “At the moment, the tour is not possible, as it was to be played in June-July, our team is out of practice. Also, international travel was included, so it would not be possible.”

“We have given our message to Sri Lanka Cricket, it is not possible to play cricket in June/July right now. Safety of our players is a top priority. There is some confusion created by some media reports saying we have agreed to tour Sri Lanka in August but if we have other commitments how can we tour Sri Lanka then,” the official added.

The coronovirus epidemic has had a huge impact on sports worldwide. The T20 World Cup is also under threat due to the deadly virus. The Premier tournament is to be played in Australia from 18 November to 15 November this year.
