Baaghi TV: In the wake of the Omicron virus India-South Africa cricket series gets postponed.
Previously Women’s World Cup qualifier matches were postponed due to Corona’s new variant Omicron, along with other cricket events. Cricket Africa has postponed all Division-2 matches after some cricketers tested positive for Corona Virus. Therefore, all Test matches, ODIs and T20 Nationals between India and South Africa have now been postponed.
Three-Test matches, three-ODIs and four-T20 series were scheduled between India and South Africa starting from December 17, while the Indian team was set to leave for South Africa on December 8.
Speaking to the Indian cricket website, the BCCI secretary confirmed the postponement of the series.
BCCI Secretary Jay Shah said that the Indian team’s departure for South Africa for the bilateral series is now subject to government permission due to which the series will now be played later.
Indian media say the decision to postpone the bilateral series was taken at the BCCI’s annual general meeting, but the board did not disclose the date of India’s visit to Africa.
On the other hand, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that if care is not taken in the case of Omicron Virus, it could spread to other parts of the world and cause harm, so great precaution must be taken in all matters.
