This tour will be of Sri Lanka. Here India has to go in the month of July. Six matches will be played between Sri Lanka and India. This series is to start from July 13. Along with Rahul Dravid, the coaching staff of the National Cricket Academy will also accompany Team India. Cricbuzz has given this news. It has been said that the Indian team will get a week’s time to prepare for the Sri Lanka tour. This assurance has been given by the Sri Lankan Board.
The BCCI had earlier planned to set up a camp in Bengaluru before this tour. But due to the worsening situation due to Corona in the city, this plan was canceled. Quoting a source, it has been written in the report that the players going to tour Sri Lanka will be the first to be quarantined in India. For this, the preparation of the players is going on. If needed, according to Sri Lanka’s bio protocol, players can go there in the bio bubble as well.
According to the guidelines of the Ministry of Health of Sri Lanka till June 8, people coming from India, Vietnam, South Africa and South American countries who have received both doses of the vaccine will have to be quarantined for a day. These rules will continue till June 30. The guidelines may change after June 30 and new instructions may be issued.

Negative RT-PCR report will also have to be given before going to Sri Lanka. After this the report should come negative even a day after reaching Sri Lanka. However, the BCCI had asked all the players to get the vaccine. But it remains to be seen how many take both the doses before going to Sri Lanka. However, it is not yet clear when the Indian team will be selected. No information has been given by the board in this regard. However, it is expected that the team will be selected in the next few weeks. Shreyas Iyer is yet to go on this tour. In such a situation, it seems certain to become the captain of Shikhar Dhawan.
