Indian Women’s tour of England in June has been postponed due to safety measure against coronavirus outbreak. The decision to postpone has come after the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has today agreed that no professional cricket will be played in England and Wales until at least 1 July because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Four One-Day International (ODIs) and two T20s was scheduled from June 25.
“International cricket, featuring England men’s and women’s teams, will look to be scheduled from July until the end of September, with the West Indies Test Series and the whole women’s series against India (Vitality IT20s and Royal London ODIs) both moving from their original slots,” ECB said in a statement.
ECB Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison said, “Our role as a national governing body during a crisis of this scale requires us to carefully plan alongside cricket’s stakeholders and supporters to attempt to overcome COVID-19’s impact on this season.”
Fixtures in the first year of the women’s elite domestic structure are currently scheduled for later in the summer and will be evaluated down the line. The suspension of recreational cricket remains until further notice.
