India and South Africa two top class team who could play three T20 International at the end of August as a part of Prior “agreement” depends on COVID 19 if it last in the month of August and if that happens we are all set to witness an exciting contest between two cricketing giants.
If we look at the fixtures the tour has been planned for late August but Cricket South Africa’s acting chief executive Jacques Faul is motivated by the BCCI willingness as both parties don’t want to hold series at the later date as both the boards are facing economic loss at the moment.
As Faul said during the press conference on Thursday “India wants to honor its agreement. If it’s postponed, maybe a bit later,”. He also added that “We’ve had a very good discussion with them (BCCI),”.
A source closed to BCCI said the possibility of holding series all depends if we get clearance from the government”.
“First, we have to get the players for a conditioning camp in a green zone. If things are on track, we would play in South Africa,” the official told PTI.
Considering the fast evolved situation, CSA has reiterated that the series will be subject to the clearance from the highest authorities of India and South Africa as approval from the top is a must. Faul also said they have applied to get permission from the South African government
“We’re seeking via Sascoc an audience with the sports minister to be approved to, if needed, play behind closed doors. This will relate specifically to the potential of an incoming Indian tour,” said Faul.
Cricket like any other sports has been affected by this pandemic COVID 19 and there has no major sports event that is conducted from the last 2 months.
