India’s South Africa tour postponed? BCCI without team announcement!

Highlights:

  • Recommended to cut matches
  • May choose to postpone
  • The BCCI is in talks with the South African Cricket Board

The expansion of the latest variant of Kovid 19, the Omicron, brings the cricket world into a crisis. South Africa is currently the country most severely affected by the spread of the virus. This could seriously affect the series between India and South Africa. India will play Tests, T20s and ODIs in South Africa. The first test is scheduled to begin on December 17th.

The Indian team must return to South Africa after the second test against New Zealand. It will be difficult for the Indian team to be back in the safety bio-bubble. In the event of further expansion by omicron, there will be strict quarantine rules.

In the current circumstances, the BCCI’s plan is to conduct the tour. But talks are being held with the South African Cricket Board. The BCCI wants to exclude a game from the three-game test series. They want to shorten the matches and end the tour earlier.

The BCCI has also postponed the announcement of the Indian team for the series. The central government’s proposal to go to South Africa is also being examined. The tour itself can be canceled if the spread of the disease creates another crisis. The BCCI said it still has time to make a decision. It’s also a matter of gamers playing games in a hurry. Days after the IPL, India played the World Cup. He is currently playing against New Zealand in the test series.
