All three cricketers will remain in isolation in Colombo for a period of 10 days. The remaining six players, including Hardik Pandya, Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Deepak Chahar and Ishan Kishan, shall be following the Sri Lankan government's quarantine guidelines for close contacts of Covid-19 patients before they are allowed to return home.
