The Indian team is in Sri Lanka gearing up for a white-ball series. Both the teams were set to lock horns from July 13 but due to the COVID-19 burst in the Sri Lankan camp, the series has been pushed further. As per the revised schedule, the series will start on July 18 and will end on July 29. Team India had already landed on the Island Nation and has also played two intrasquad games. In their spare time, Indian cricketers are engaging themselves in interesting activities. India's all-rounder cricketers - the Pandya brothers were recently seen facing off against each other in a gym challenge.
