    The COVID-19 pandemic has raged havoc across the World and in the disappointing development, it has affected the series between Sri Lanka and India. After successful completion of the three-ODI series, which visitors won 1-2, both the nations are currently locking horns in the T20I series.

    After Shikhar Dhawan-led side completed an emphatic 38-run victory over Sri Lanka in the first T20I, the second match was scheduled to take place on Tuesday (27th July) but was postponed by 24 hours after ace all-rounder Krunal Pandya was tested positive for the COVID-19.

    Eight players including Surykumar Yadav, Prithvi Shaw and Hardik Pandya who were in close contact with all-rounder have returned negative results but as per the reports, these players are doubtful for the rest of the remaining matches of the series as they have to complete the mandatory seven-day isolation.
