The two remaining India-South Africa One Day Internationals in Lucknow and Kolkata have been called off owing to the COVID-19 threat as the country’s sports calendar continued to go haywire because of the global pandemic. The  Board Secretary Jay Shah told agencies that with the IPL being postponed, it only made sense that at this point in time, this series is also called off. The South African team will come to Delhi and leave by taking the earliest available flight,  he added.

The game in Lucknow was scheduled to be held on Sunday, while the Kolkata ODI was to be played on 18th  March. The first ODI between the two sides in Dharamsala was washed out without a ball being bowled due to incessant rain.

BCCI later issued a statement to say that the series will be rescheduled at a later date. The IPL was also pushed today to April 15 from its scheduled 29th  March start. The matches were earlier planned to be held behind closed doors due to the government directive, which asked for sporting events to be shut for fans in view of the pandemic.

This is only the second time in three decades that an international cricket series in India has been called off midway, the last being in 2014 by the West Indies team over a pay dispute with its Board.
