After Grant Flower, Sri Lanka's data analyst tests positive for Covid-19

They were tested on their arrival from England where Sri Lanka played three ODIs and as many T20Is

Sri Lanka's data analyst, GT Niroshan, who returned with the squad from England after the completion of the limited-overs series has tested positive for Covid-19. His result came out after national players, coaches, and support staff were tested yesterday, following batting coach Grant Flower testing positive

The analyst is now undergoing the medical protocols as prescribed. Flower too had been put under quarantine right after he was tested positive after he had shown mild symptoms. 

Sri Lanka take on India in a three-match One-Day International (ODI) series, followed by as many T20 Internationals (T20I), starting July 13. The Indian team arrived in the Island Nation, have completed the required quarantine and have been training since. They have played a couple of intra-squad matches well.

Covid-19 has also put a damper on the limited-overs series between England and Pakistan. Seven players and support staff were tested positive for the coronavirus, which led to the ECB naming nine uncapped members into the squad and also rushed Ben Stokes back to lead in the team in the absence of Eoin Morgan. Morgan along with his England teammates and staff are currently in quarantine after the virus broke out in their camp.

England, as a result, handed five ODI debuts on Tuesday (July 8) in the first ODI against Pakistan in Cardiff - a match that saw the hosts romp home to an eight-wicket victory. Previously, they had blanked Sri Lanka 3-0 in the T20 T20I series and then beat them 2-0 in the ODI series that followed.
