Krunal Pandya Tests COVID Positive, 2nd Sri Lanka vs India T20 Postponed

by Ankita Mohanty

The second T20 international match between Sri Lanka vs India at Colombo’s Premadasa Stadium tonight has been put to a stop as Indian Cricketer Krunal Pandya tested positive for COVID today.  The supposed match has been shifted to Wednesday.

Sources suggest that the 8 players who had been in contact with Pandya are being isolated. Two of them are Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav.

If they also test positive for the virus then Shaw and Yadav may lose a chance to play the tour of England. They were being flown in as reinforcements after Shubman Gill, Avesh Khan and Washington Sundar were ruled out due to injuries in England.

Currently, India is leading the three-match series after an awesome 38-run win in the opening game on Sunday. Krunal Pandya took 1 for 16 in his two overs in the first game.

Sri Lanka has to win on Wednesday to stay alive in the CoinDCX Cup, probably the first time a company is dealing with cryptocurrency and bitcoins to sponsor a major cricket series in the sub-continent.

As of now, both Indian and Sri Lankan teams are in a bio-bubble and players will be isolated as per standard protocols.
