After the completion of four games, the organisers decided to postpone the tournament for another period which will be notified later. On the postponement of the tournament, former cricketers Sachin Tendulkar and Brian Lara share some special message to the fans and media.
“The rescheduling of this series, held to create awareness about Road Safety, is unfortunate yet the right step. We all hope and pray that the spread of novel coronavirus is contained,” Sachin Tendulkar said.
Regarding the current situation, Brian Lara said, “The situation is a little disappointing now but we are looking forward to come back and take part in the remaining games of the series.”
“People are hungry for cricket, they are hungry to see legends, like (Virender) Sehwag and Sachin (Tendulkar), when they come out to play cricket. So I think this tournament was awesome. The competition was even more than I expected. It was very special, seeing Sachin back on the field again and seeing the crowd reaction,” Lara added.
