Zimbabwe-Afghanistan T-20 series called off
After a prolonged Period of lockdown and health crisis, COVID-19 pandemic is still taking a heavy toll on human lives as well as in every aspect. Another series of cricket was canceled due to coronavirus outbreak. Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has announced that it will not host the T20 series against Afghanistan for the time being.
Zimbabwe were scheduled to play a five-match T20 series against Afghanistan this month. But the decision to cancel the series was officially announced on Saturday due to an increase in the incidence of Covid-19 disease there.
Givmore Makoni, acting managing director of ZC, said the board had requested the government to organize the series by creating a safe and controlled environment. But as the number of victims of the epidemic continued to rise, it was not allowed.
Zimbabwe’s membership was suspended in July last year over allegations of government interference in the management and administration of the cricket board. After three months, however, the country got it back. After that push, they were supposed to be busy this year. But it did not happen when the coronavirus touched.
Initially, Zimbabwe was scheduled to play a three-match ODI series against India at home this August. However, it was canceled last June. The Zimbabwean team was scheduled to tour Australia this month after nearly 18 years of playing a bilateral series. That too has already been postponed.
