Sports 2nd SL v IND T20 postponed, Krunal Pandya tests COVID-19 positive

The second T20 international match between Sri Lanka vs India at Colombo's Premadasa Stadium scheduled to be played tonight (27) has been halted after Krunal Pandya tested positive for COVID today.  

The match is likely to take place on Wednesday if the rest of the team test negative.

Both Indian and Sri Lankan teams are in a bio-bubble and players will be isolated as per standard protocols.

India are leading the three-match series after an emphatic 38-run win in the opening game on Sunday, during which Pandya took 1 for 16 in his two overs in the first game.

 Earlier, the ODI series between India and Sri Lanka was deferred due to Covid-19 cases in the home team's camp. Sri Lanka's batting coach Grant Flower and data analyst G T Niroshan had tested positive for the virus upon their return from England tour.
