Host Carl Lewis chats with cricket writer Christopher Chiwanza about CSA’s decision to pull out of an ODI series in favour of a new T20 competition.
The Proteas have cancelled their men’s one-day international series scheduled for Australia in January, it was confirmed on Wednesday.
Cricket Australia announced that matches scheduled for Hobart, Sydney and Perth (on 12, 14 and 17 January) have been scrapped after South Africa requested new dates to avoid a clash with their domestic T20 league could not be accommodated.
“It is disappointing that Cricket South Africa will be unable to contest the ODI series in January,” said Cricket Australia chief executive Nick Hockley.
The series was part of the ICC Super League which determines direct qualification for the 2023 World Cup.
