The limited-overs series between India and Sri Lanka is likely to be postponed after two members of Sri Lanka’s staff tested positive for coronavirus, sources in the Sri Lanka cricket board told NDTV. Sri Lanka Cricket has proposed a new schedule, with the series — which was to get underway on July 13 — now set to begin on July 17. Sri Lanka’s data analyst GT Niroshan tested positive for the virus on Friday, while batting coach Grant Flower had returned a positive test a day before.

India are scheduled to play three ODIs against Sri Lanka, followed by as many T20 Internationals.

The first ODI was to be played on July 13 in Colombo but if the new schedule is agreed upon, it will be moved to July 17.
