BCCI president Sourav Ganguly confirmed that India will travel to Sri Lanka to play 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is in July. 

Speaking to Sportstar, Ganguly said that India is supposed to go to Sri Lanka for a limited over series which consists of 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is. 

According to the ICC’s Future Tour Programme (FTP), Sri Lanka are scheduled to play 3 T20Is against India in July. India were also scheduled to play 3 T20Is and 3 ODIs in the island in June last year but the tour was cancelled due to the pandemic.

However, if the Sri Lanka tour happens in July, it is highly likely that India will field a different squad without their first choice players as a 20-man Test squad along with 4 reserve players will travel to England on 2nd June to play the World Test championship final against New Zealand.
