Sri Lankan cricket board (SLC) and Cricket South Africa (CSA) have jointly decided to postpone the limited-overs series between the two countries due to the global pandemic. The series was scheduled on the Island in June. However, with the situation not improving, postponing the series was the only option for the two boards.
The 3 ODIs which were to be played between the two nations, were part of the ICC ODI Super League- which is linked with the qualification for the ICC Cricket World Cup in India in 2023. CSA took the decision considering the health of the players and the lack of training opportunities.
This is South Africa’s 2nd series to be canceled in the past 2 months or so. Their tour of India was also postponed considering the global pandemic. With the perpetuating fear of the virus, the global cricketing activities will remain suspended for an indefinite period.
