Since COVID-19 pandemic disrupted sports schedule worldwide, there is a Ray of Hope for Cricket lovers. International cricket was affected as it has been hit by the corona virus pandemic with no matches taking place since the second week of March. Incidentally, T20I series which was suspended due to the outbreak is in the process of restart as there is a strong chance that India and South Africa may indulge in a three-match T20I series in late August.
Earlier this year in February BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and Cricket South Africa’s director of cricket Graeme Smith made an agreement of three ODIs. The series was called off due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, a final approval is needed from the government of both countries.
Cricket South Africa (CSA) acting chief executive Jacques Faul said “India wants to honour its agreement. If it’s postponed, maybe a bit later,”
In India, according to Ministry of Home Affairs’ guidelines, the stadiums are being opened but no spectators will be allowed. Players can start their individual training although the camp which they were planning won’t happen till travel restrictions are in place.
