There are some positive news coming towards the cricket fans as the series between India and Sri Lanka might take place as planned in June this year. As all the scheduled tours have been cancelled one after the other due to the covid-19, it was expected that the Sri Lankan series might be the another casualty but the BCCI treasurer has some positive news in store for the fed up cricket fans.
It was already reported that the England players will start their skill based training starting next week keeping the important Pakistan and West Indies series in mind. As the corona pandemic has been brought into control in major parts of UK, it is expected that there will be some cricketing action rather sooner than expected.
A short limited overs series was planned between India and the Island nation in Sri Lanka in June this year but it is now close to being suspended due to the current circumstances. As there is no real threat in Sri Lanka, the BCCI is open to travel to the Lanka as planned provided there is no travel restrictions on players by then.
Here’s what the BCCI treasurer in Arun Dhumal had to say about the Sri Lanka tour.
It all depends on government directives pertaining to lockdown relaxations and travel restrictions. We are open to travel if it doesn’t compromise the safety and health of our boys
As the cash rich league in Indian premier league has been suspended indefinitely, the BCCI could face a huge loss of up to 4000 crores if IPL gets cancelled for this year which can be a huge amount to match up to.
It is also learnt that if BCCI had to face any such crisis situation then the Indian players may see some pay cuts although that is not confirmed yet. All in all, a dry phase is awaiting all the cricket fans around the world
