Pretoria, South Africa – Many cricket fans were delighted that their favorite sport was soon making its way to their screens and radio on the the 27th of this month but that has been reversed.
According to Cricket South Africa (CSA), the mini tournament which was going to see three different teams tussling it off for the maiden silverware has been halted due to lack of preparedness.
“The operational teams behind the Solidarity match and event partners in collaboration with Cricket South Africa, 3TCricket and SuperSport met to consider the readiness to host the event on 27 June.
Following this meeting, it has become clear that more work is needed in preparation including approval. A new date will be announced in due course,” read a statement from CSA.
South Africa was set to become the first country to resume its cricket but due to this minor setback countries like England, New Zealand and Australia could soon resume their cricket due to the reduced lockdown COVID-19 regulations in their countries.
