Sports Desk- All cricket tournaments are closed now due to Coronavirus (COVID19). But there is good news for cricket fans. Team India and South Africa may play three T20 Internationals at the end of August, provided the situation arising out of the coronavirus pandemic improves substantially, Cricket South Africa announced in a press release on Thursday.
Africa has canceled its Sri Lanka tour due to coronavirus. But to overcome the economic crisis, CSA is calling on India for a home series.
“We are in constant touch with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for the T20 series,” CSA’s acting chief executive Jacques Faul said in a press conference on Thursday. Hopefully, BCCI can prepare for this. We play only social distance games. We can also play this series without an audience. “
BCCI agreeing to this bilateral series will also mean that they will have CSA’s support if they want to organise the IPL in October-November window instead of T20 World Cup.
Faul said they have already initiated the process to seek permission from the South African government. “We’re seeking via Sascoc an audience with the sports minister to be given approval to, if needed, play behind closed doors.
South African team was in India in March this year for a three-match ODI series but after the first match in Dharamsala was abandoned due to incessant rain, the remaining two were suspended to the novel coronavirus outbreak across the globe.
