Bangladesh is all set to host Sri Lanka for the three-match ODI series and the first game is scheduled for today (May 23). However, doubts began to float over the series when several of Sri Lanka’s players tested positive for the COVID-19. Isuru Udana, bowling coach Chaminda Vaas and limitless pacemaker Shiran Fernando delivered positive results ahead of the opening ODI.

However, at the latest events, it has been made clear that the series between the two countries will continue on schedule. The affected players were immediately isolated and have now returned negative results as well. According to the reports, Vaas and Udana who previously tested positive (May 18) tested negative on their samples collected on May 22.

All three ODI will take place at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium due to security concerns and bio-calling protocols. Bangladesh will be the favorite this time to win the series against the inexperienced Lanka side. However, keep in mind that Bangladesh traveled to the island for the Test series last month and was defeated.

Kusal Perera will lead the inexperienced side of Sri Lanka

It’s already a known fact that Lanka’s big names and veteran players including Angelo Mathews, Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne have been dropped from the series. New faces have been welcomed to the series and it will be good to see them take on the responsibilities. Kusal Perera has replaced Dimuth Karunaratne as Lanka’s ODI skipper for the series.

“The bubble in Dhaka is under threat as Chaminda Vaas, Isuru Udana and Shiran Fernando test positive for COVID. The three-game series that would start today is questionable. Team is waiting for the results of the second PCR test, ”the reports previously stated.

Tamim Iqbal and his company look strong enough on the newspaper this time to get the series in their favor with Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman welcomed back into the side. On the other hand, big weapons like Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah are already on the side of the hosts.
