What’s next for India and Sri Lanka in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League?
According to the original schedule of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League, the Indian cricket team was set to host South Africa in a three-match series in October 2021. However, that series is unlikely to happen because of the IPL 2021 and ICC T20 World Cup 2021. India’s next series will probably be against West Indies at home.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka have an away series against New Zealand. They are also scheduled to host Afghanistan, South Africa and Zimbabwe. The dates for these four series have not been released yet.
