South Africa Tour Of Sri Lanka Detail
The South Africa tour to Sri Lanka consisted of three ODIs, followed by as many T20Is. The tour was originally planned for the first half of June. Both boards have now agreed to postpone the series, with new dates still to be decided.
“It is very sad that we were forced to take this step and we will reschedule the tour as soon as cricket returns to a sense of normalcy and our international schedule list allows it,” commented Dr. Jacques Faul, acting managing director of CSA.
