South Africa vs England: 2nd ODI postponed, tour under jeopardy

The second ODI of the South Africa- England series has been postponed after a couple of COVID ‘unconfirmed’ positive cases that have hit the England squad. Positive cases amongst the squad was the same reason the first ODI was cancelled; two people in the visiting squad had tested positive for the coronavirus.

A joint statement released by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and Cricket South Africa (CSA) regarding the issue read, “Once the findings of this review have been received, CSA and ECB will then discuss how best to proceed concerning the remaining two matches of this ODI series.” 


The 3rd ODI is scheduled to be played on Wednesday but even that looks unlikely due to the current situation both teams face.
