“It is not possible to go ahead with the tour in June-July and we have conveyed it to the Sri Lankan board (SLC). However, we remain committed to the series (at a later date),” BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal said.

A media release from Sri Lanka also confirmed the development.

“The BCCI informed Sri Lanka Cricket that due to the prevailing circumstances revolving around Covid-19 pandemic, the cricket series, which included three ODIs and three T20I matches, will not be feasible,” the SLC stated.
