The three-match ODI series will now commence from July 18, instead of July 13. This will be followed by the three match T20 series.
The decision to revise the plan was taken on the basis of health advisory after the Sri Lankan team detected two Covid positive cases.
Grant Flower, the current Sri Lankan batting Coach and former Zimbabwe opener was the first to test positive for Covid 19.
The three One Day Internationals will be played on July 18, July 20, and July 23. It will be followed by a T20 series starting from July 25, July 27 and July 29.
