South Africa Postpones Tour Against Sri Lanka

Cricket South Africa and Sri Lanka Cricket have both decided to suspend their match set in June amid COVID-19. 

South Africa and Sri Lanka were supposed to play three ODIs and three T20Is in June. However, due to the outbreak of COVID-19 across the globe, both cricket organizations had deemed it best to postpone the matches instead of pushing through. 

Acting CSA acting chief executive Dr Jacques Faul commented on the issue by saying, ‘It is very sad that we have been forced to take this step and we will re-schedule the tour as soon as cricket returns to a sense of normality and our international fixture list allows.’

He also added that the Proteas squad takes the situation seriously and that they carefully consider the health condition of their players. He also said that this tour which was supposed to be held in Sri Lanka was important for them as it would help the team prepare for the T20 World Cup in Australia. 

The postponement of the said tour added up to the long list of indefinitely delayed matches due to the virus. To learn more about the different formats of cricket, feel free to head over to Betwala.
