Zimbabwe's tour to Australia postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic
Dubai/IBNS: A One Day International (ODI) series between Zimbabwe and Australia, which was scheduled to be played in August, has been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The tour has been postponed indefinitely.
The ODIs were scheduled to be played on Aug 9, 12 and 15.
Nick Hockley, the interim CEO of Cricket Australia, said, "While we are disappointed to postpone the series, CA and ZC agree that in the best interest of players, match officials, volunteers as well as our fans, that this is the most practical and sensible decision."
"We are committed to working with Zimbabwe Cricket on alternative dates to reschedule," the CEO added.
Givemore Makoni, the acting managing director of Zimbabwe Cricket, stated that the two boards are working closely on rescheduling the series.
"We were excited about facing Australia but, given the circumstances, deferring the tour was the only option. We are, however, looking forward to the rescheduling of the series as soon as practically possible," he said.
