The decision came after head coach Mickey Arthur and top-order batsman Lahiru Thirimanne tested positive for Covid-19 on Feb. 03. Subsequently, the entire squad is currently in self-isolation.
Reportedly, Thirimanne had attended the wedding of wicketkeeper-batsman Sadeera Samarawickrama on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Arthur had been on a break following the Test series against England.
Practices are currently halted and a decision on restarting practices will be taken soon, an SLC official said, speaking to 'Sri Lanka Mirror'.
