Sri Lanka don’t want Day-Night test match
In the report of the Times of India Sri Lanka cricket board want to change the schedule of the series they want the T20 series before the test series.
The Sri Lanka Cricket Board wants this because it will make it easier for players to move from one bio bubble to another.
Right now test captain of the team is not announced because now Virat Kohli is not the captain of the team.
In ODI and T20 format Rohit Sharma is captain of Men in blue, but till now no one is captain of Test cricket.
