"The arrangements for the next camp is aimed at becoming the best prepared international team post-COVID-19 and to be ready to play at any given time," said Mickey Arthur, the head coach of the team.

The squad members will continue to follow the health procedures, followed during the first camp, conducted earlier this month in Colombo.
