It looks like finally there is some news coming for fans of Indian cricket. The Cricket-loving people of the country have been starved of any live action since India’s dismal tour of New Zealand where the visitors were whitewashed in the ODI and Test series. The government of India has announced that in the fourth phase of the lockdown,stadiums can be used without entry of crowds.
This can be the perfect launchpad for the players who would fear being rusty, to get back to practice after a long interval. Sri Lanka is one of the least affected by Covid-19 and after initially inviting BCCI to host the IPL, SLC has now invited BCCI to come for the proposed limited overs bilateral series in July.
BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal in what is a massive development, has given his green signal for the series but has also warned that it will be subject to government clearance. “It all depends on government directives pertaining to lockdown relaxations and travel restrictions. We are open to travel if it doesn’t compromise the safety and health of our boys,” Dhumal wrote, as per the report in Hindustan Times.
