The West Indies are considering to squeeze in a part of their South African tour just before the Indian Premier League starts.
As IPL 2020 becomes clearer, the West Indies are actually considering to somehow play at least a fraction of their tour with South Africa which is comprised of two Tests and five T20Is which had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As per CWI chief executive Johnny Grave, ‘We hope that South Africa will be able to come here in September for either a T20-only tour or a Test-only tour at the very least. It will be dependent on the IPL. South Africa has a number of their Test players who have IPL contracts, whereas in this current Test team we don't have any IPL players’.
‘We won't be able to play Test cricket against South Africa during the IPL, Cricket South Africa have made that very clear to us. They've got a commitment to their players to allow them to go and play in the IPL’, he added.
So far, both CWI and the CSA have decided to cut the tour as IPL starts on September 19. Aside from that, another event which may alter the schedule of the team’s schedules may be the Caribbean Premier League which is slated to end on September 10. Until then, the two cricket boards remain unsure on how to push through with all of their games.
