Team India is to leave for Sri Lanka on June 28.
Before the Corona era, on foreign tours, the Indian team used to get a chance to play practice matches with the local or A-team. This helped the team to adjust to the atmosphere before the series. Due to Corona, the Indian team will do match practice by forming a team among themselves. According to the information, Team India will play three practice matches among themselves before the start of the ODI series.
According to the information, after reaching Colombo, the players of the Indian team will be in a hard quarantine in the hotel for three days. After this, they will have to stay in soft quarantine. During this, the players of the team will be able to practice. This quarantine will run till July 4, after which the players will be allowed to go in the team bubble. A three-match ODI series will be played on July 13, 16, and 18. After this, three T20 matches are to be played on 21, 23, and 25 July.
