Australia’s cricket visit through South Africa has been deferred because of the Covid-19 pandemic, Cricket Australia said in an articulation on Tuesday.
Australian players were booked to fly out this month for a three-Test arrangement in March, however the visiting side’s cricket load up said it had no real option except to defer the excursion because of the South African pestilence.
“It has become evident that going from Australia to South Africa at this current time represents an inadmissible degree of wellbeing and danger to our players, uphold staff and the local area,” CA’s interval Chief Executive Nick Hockley said in an explanation.
“This choice has not been made softly and we are amazingly frustrated, particularly given the significance of proceeding with global cricket as of now.”
South Africa has recorded more than 1.45 million Covid cases and more than 44,000 passings. Since before the end of last year, it has been fighting a more contagious variation of the infection.
Australia, where the spread of Covid has been less intense, as of late facilitated an arrangement against India that included three Twenty20 internationals, three one-dayers and four Test matches.
“We anticipate playing the arrangement against CSA at a date to be affirmed at the appropriate time,” Hockley added.
South Africa facilitated Sri Lanka for two Tests around the turn of the year and their Test side are right now visiting Pakistan.
