Indian team denied practice matches against Sri Lanka A team, say sources

Indian team for the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka has assembled in Mumbai and by the time a source from the Sri Lankan cricket board said that their board denied the BCCI for warm-up games against the “A” side.

Speaking to ANI, sources in the know of developments in the Lankan board had confirmed that the Indian players wanted to play some practice games, but the COVID-19 situation meant it had to be intra-squad games and not against a Sri Lanka A team.

“The Indians wanted to play some warm-up games against the ”A” team or a team that could be arranged, but the COVID-19 protocols made that a little difficult and that is when a request went to BCCI to play intra-squad games. So, the Indian team will now play one T20 game and two one-day games to prepare for the limited-overs series,” the source said.
