South Africa’s tour of India was among the many cricket tournaments which got affected by the outbreak of a “pandemic” in COVID-19.
The first ODI between South Africa and India was abandoned without a ball being bowled as incessant rains called the shots in Dharamsala.
With sporting events starting to get postponed / cancelled due to coronavirus, it was announced that the second and third ODI will be played behind closed doors in Lucknow and Kolkata respectively.
