The schedule for the ongoing Sri Lanka Cricket Invitational T20 League has been revised after staff in the players’ hotel tested positive for COVID-19, according to the island’s cricket board.

The two matches originally scheduled for today will now be played on August 21.

“The employees of the hotel, who were identified as Covid positive during a routine PCR Test carried out on the 17th of August, were not in direct contact with the players and the support staff,” Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) assured in a statement.

“Following the identification, the players and the support staff were shifted to two different hotels as a precautionary measure.
