Australia women’s ODI and T20 tour to SA postponed - Sports Leo

Cricket SA (CSA) has accepted the decision of the Australian Cricket Board (ACB) to postpone the planned tour of the Australian Women’s team to South Africa for a series of ODI and T20 International matches due to threat of Covid-19.

The ACB said the decision to postpone the tour due to concerns around the spread of the coronavirus was in the best interest of players.

Jacques Faul, interim Chief Executive at CSA said: “We confirm the postponement of the Australian Women’s tour to South Africa and we understand and respect the decision.

“Cricket South Africa is also closely monitoring the tour of the Protea men’s team in India and we are in constant consultation with medical and virology experts, stakeholders in government, the BCCI and the team. We will apply our minds to the input of experts and act in a way that reflects our duty of caring for our players.”

“I would also like to stress that this decision was not taken lightly and is in the best interest of the players of both teams.  CSA will do a full risk assessment on the influence of the virus on our operations, including the current domestic season and following this, we will work with our key cricket partners to find an appropriate window in the international cricket calendar, to stage these matches.”
