Cricket Schedule 2021: Upcoming Fixtures, Where to Watch & More

A few days back, the young and exuberant Indian men’s cricket team wrapped the Tour of Sri Lanka One-Day International (ODI) Series with a 2-1 win.


The team was led by none other than Shikhar Dhawan, who had spectacular innings in the first two ODIs. Not only this, there was an exciting scheme of events taking place. For example, a total of five (5) debutants played in the inconsequential 3rd ODI at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

The series also witnessed power-packed performances by Surya Kumar Yadav and Prithvi Shaw. In fact, they might be considered to participate in the upcoming Tour of England Test Series starting from 4 Aug’21.
