Over – 50’s Cricket World Cup cancelled

The Over-50s Cricket World Cup being staged in Cape Town South Africa has been cancelled following the Covid-19 virus pandemic.

The organising committee took the decision during the course of the third round of matches which were then abandoned after the first innings.
“It is a public health risk decision,” said the head of the tournament’s medical committee, Dr Parag Pandya. “The decision was taken for the protection of the players, given their age demographic, but also for the local population given that 95 per cent of known cases in South African have come from travellers.”
