Sri Lanka awaiting India and Bangladesh responses over tours

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) are awaiting confirmation that India will agree to tour for limited-overs series’ in June.

SLC invited India to fly out for three ODIs and as many Twenty20 Internationals, while the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) are also considering the opportunity to tour for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic brought the vast majority of sport to a halt. Ashley de Silva, the SLC chief executive, revealed there has been no official word from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) or the BCB over whether they will take up the offers.

“We have made inquiries from both the India and Bangladesh boards and are awaiting a response from them,” he told ESPNcricinfo.

The BCCI on Sunday stated that contracted players would not be rushed back into training camps after the government gave the go-ahead for sports facilities to reopen.
