England’s ODI series against South Africa has been called off.
The white-ball leg started with the three T20Is as scheduled but the ODI series couldn’t start last week as per plan. There were three delays inside four days due to COVID-19 positive cases in both squads and within the bio-secure hotel in Cape Town.
On December 7, the second ODI was supposed to start at 10 am but the teams had not reached the ground by 9 am.
Cricket South Africa and the England and Wales Cricket Board informed about the delayed start but the decision to abandon the tour was conveyed just less than half-an-hour before the first ball.
