• Dutch cricket board ‘reviewing all of its options’

    Cricket South Africa has provided an update on the current ODI series between the Proteas and Netherlands following the detection of a newly identified Covid-19 variant in the country.

    In a statement on Friday, while the first ODI was still being played in Centurion, CSA said it and Koninklijke Nederlandse Cricket Bond (KNCB) were aware of reports suggesting that the tour could be cancelled or postponed.

    “Both boards can confirm that following updated information, it is highly unlikely that the visiting team will be able to fly out of South Africa over the weekend,” the statement continued.

    “The KNCB is reviewing all of its options, while prioritising the physical and mental well-being of its players.

    “A decision on the continuation of the series will follow in the next 24 to 48 hours, while all flight options are being considered.”
