Based on the request of the Indian team management in Sri Lanka, the All-India Senior Selection Committee has named additions to India’s squad for the second and third T20Is.

The five net bowlers – Ishan Porel, Sandeep Warrier, Arshdeep Singh, R Sai Kishore and Simarjeet Singh – will now be part of the squad for the remaining T20Is.

Squad and availability updates for the 2 T20Is

After Krunal Pandya was tested positive for COVID-19 on July 27th, all members of the team and support staff were immediately isolated and tested as a safety measure. The test results for everyone including the eight identified close contacts of Krunal returned negative. 

Following the test on 27th July, a Rapid Antigen test was also conducted today (28th July) at noon and they have all returned negative results.

However, to ensure health and safety of the squad, the 8 close contacts will continue to remain in isolation in the team hotel.

The remaining T20Is will go on as per the schedule.
