In the meantime, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is dissatisfied with Grant Flower’s performance. After reportedly breaching the bio-bubble during the series against England, the Ex-Zimbabwe player now will undergo an investigation.

Dhawan Leads A 20-Man Group Includes Six-Uncapped Players
Sri Lanka and India will play a white-ball series on July 18, and both squads are working out to stay fit and healthy. Indian players are now sweating it out in the gym and playing intra-squad matches. Shikhar Dhawan leads a 20-man group that includes 6 uncapped players.
The six uncapped players were recently spotted and they appeared to be joyful. Nitesh Rana, Chetan Sakariya, and Varun Chakravarthy might participate in the T20 format, while Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devdutt Padikkal could play ODIs.
The Lankan team, on the other hand, reached a new low by losing their fifth T20I series in a row against England. The team’s performance in the ODI series was also poor, resulting in a lot of disappointment and fury among critics, analysts, and supporters.
As most of the players returning to their country and Team India not sending a full team, Sri Lanka will aim to fight back once the limited-overs series begins on July 18 against India.
