The Indian white-ball squad has convened in Mumbai ahead of the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka, and each individual is now quarantined. In preparation for the limited-overs series against Sri Lanka, India's team, led by Shikhar Dhawan, will play three intra-squad games in Colombo. But first, the squad will be quarantined for 14 days in India (seven days of rigorous quarantine and seven days of light quarantine) before moving on to Colombo. "The limited-overs team for Team India's series against Sri Lanka has arrived in Mumbai. It's great to see some new and smiling faces in the team "BCCI sent out a tweet.

Sources close to the Lankan board told ANI that the Indian players wanted to play some practise games, but that due to the COVID-19 scenario, these would have to be intra-squad games rather than against a Sri Lanka A team. "The Indians intended to play some warm-up games against the "A" team or another team that could be arranged, but the COVID-19 protocols made that difficult, thus a request to play intra-squad games was made to the BCCI. To preparation for the limited-overs series, the Indian side would play one T20 match and two one-day matches "According to the source.

The All-India Senior Selection Committee named the roster for the three-match ODI and three-match T20I series on Thursday. Dhawan will head the team, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar selected as the vice-captain. The R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium in Colombo will host all of the matches.

The schedule for India and Sri Lanka's three-match ODI and three-match T20I series was announced earlier this week. The three one-day internationals will be held on July 13, 16, and 18. The T20I series will begin on July 21, with the following two matches taking place on July 23 and 25.
