COLOMBO (News 1st); The second T20 international match between Sri Lanka vs India at Colombo’s Premadasa Stadium tonight has been halted after Krunal Pandya tested positive for COVID on Tuesday (27).

The match will be played on Wednesday (28), said Sri Lanka Cricket.

According to sources, eight Indian players who were in proximity of Krunal Pandya, are being isolated.

Two of them are Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav.

If they also test positive for the virus then Shaw and Yadav may miss the tour of England.

They were being flown in as reinforcements after Shubman Gill, Avesh Khan and Washington Sundar were ruled out due to injuries in England.

India are leading the three-match series after an emphatic 38-run win in the opening game on Sunday.

Both Indian and Sri Lankan teams are in a bio-bubble and players will be isolated as per standard protocols.
Earlier, the ODI series between India and Sri Lanka was deferred due to Covid-19 cases in the home team’s camp.
