COVID19: South Africa tour to West Indies, Sri Lanka postponed indefinitely

The South Africa men’s cricket team’s tours of West Indies and Sri Lanka have been postponed indefinitely in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

The team was supposed to play two-match Test series and five T20Is against West Indies in July-August and three ODIs and as many T20Is against Sri Lanka in June.

“West Indies has been postponed indefinitely. We are struggling to find a time with the IPL being fitted in.It looks like our players are going to be needed from the beginning of September, government-permitting, and travel permitting. Sri Lanka also [postponed]. I expect that once things get up and running, our team, on the men’s side, I would say from November onwards, if all goes well, it will be a really busy period for South African cricket, probably playing in times that we haven’t played before and trying to cram in a lot of the missed tours,” ESPNcricinfo quoted Smith as saying.

Cricket West Indies chief executive Johnny Grave had earlier stated that they are looking to host South Africa for more T20Is as there is slim window between CPL and the tour.

However, Smith has postponed the tour indefinitely as there is no perfect window.
