Sports events continue to be affected by deadly Coronavirus. Now due to this virus, India’s tour of Lanka in July has also been postponed. India was supposed to play ODIs and the T20 series on this tour. But due to Coronavirus, it has been now postponed.
However, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board is hoping that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will complete the series this year. Bangladesh is also scheduled to visit Sri Lanka next month. But given the current state of Covid-19, there is little hope that it will send its team to Sri Lanka.

While the Test series between England and West Indies is starting next month. So the postponement of this India’s tour to Sri Lanka is a bit surprising.
The Indian fans were speculating from the England-West Indies series that they too would get a chance to watch the live-action of Team India’s matches soon. But fans have to wait to watch the live cricket action of the Indian team.
Earlier, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said that the proposed limited-overs series in Sri Lanka in July, it is still the policy of “look and wait”.
But in view of the Coronavirus epidemic, now the board had made it clear that it would follow the government’s guidelines. Because the safety of players is a priority for BCCI.
The Indian Premier League’s 13th season was also scheduled to play from 29th March. But BCCI also postponed it for an indefinite period. As per the latest report, Sourav Ganguly hinted to stage the IPL in October-November this year. But IPL’s organization this year also depends on the cancellation of the T20 World Cup.
