South Africa’s three-match ODI series between the host nation and the Netherlands was postponed on Saturday due to growing concerns over the new nature of the Kovid-19. The first ODI of the series being played under the World Cup Super League was canceled due to heavy rain at Centurion on Friday. The next two matches were also to be played at the same venue on 28 November and 1 December.
CSA’s Acting CEO (Chief Executive Officer) Foletsi Mosecki said: “We are disappointed by this unfortunate situation. However, it is paramount for us to take care of all the visiting teams. “The mental well-being of the players is a top priority of CSA and we respect the vision of the visiting teams,” he added.
“CSA and KNCB will discuss about re-organizing this tour in this cycle of the ICC Future Tour program ending in 2023,” he said. Netherlands coach Ryan Campbell said in a tweet that the team was under a lot of pressure after several countries, including the UK, the US and the European Union, imposed restrictions on flights to and from South Africa.
