South Africa suspends tour of Sri Lanka and West Indies
South Africa suspends a tour of Sri Lanka and the West Indies. Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) director and former Proteas captain Graeme Smith have confirmed that the two series are not happening at the moment.
South Africa was scheduled to play three ODIs and a T20 series in Sri Lanka in June. He was scheduled to play two Tests and five Twenty20 Internationals at the end of July. Initially, two of those tours were postponed.
There were plans to hold two series between August-September-October this year. However, this is no longer possible as the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), the Sri Lankan Premier League (LPL), and all international flights to South Africa are closed. As a result, the two series have been postponed indefinitely.
England has brought the international series back on the field. The team has successfully completed a three-match Test series with the Windies. They are currently playing a three-match ODI series in Ireland. After that, the English will play three Tests and the T20 series with Pakistan.
Just as the cricketing world has been baffled by England’s plan, so too has the news of disappointment. Numerous series including tournaments like Asia Cup, T20 World Cup has been postponed. This time two more series were added to that list.
