England Tests in Sri Lanka to ‘go ahead’ despite new pandemic fears

England’s Test tour to Sri Lanka next month is ‘on schedule’ despite flights from United Kingdom being suspended because of a new coronavirus strain. England is expected to arrive in the island on January 3, 2021 to complete their rescheduled two-match Test series in Galle starting on January 14.

“The tour is on as scheduled,” confirmed Prof. Arjuna de Silva, Head of SLC’s Medical Committee.

“We have had a discussion with the health authorities and we will take all protective measures to play the series on a bio-secure bubble.”
