With all-rounder Krunal Pandya testing positive for COVID-19, Tuesday's T20I between India and Sri Lanka has been postponed and is likely to take place on Wednesday if the rest test negative.

Speaking to ANI, sources in the know of developments said Krunal has tested COVID-19 positive and that forced the two teams to go into isolation till reports come in of the rest of the players.

"Krunal has tested positive and the T20I on Tuesday has been postponed and will happen on Wednesday if all the others test negative. The players are currently isolating," the source told ANI.
