Commenting on the matter, Sri Lanka Cricket CEO Ashley de Silva said: ‘Until the national contract is resolved, they are asked to sign a tour deal so that they can play a series against India. They are available to us, and then we can send them in the Bio Bubble. But he is hesitant to sign a tour deal and for this reason he has been left in a residential camp. He did not join the bubble in Colombo and Dambulla.
