Cricket South Africa (CSA) has revised the dates for the solidarity Cup, 3T Cricket, according to which, the new format of the game will be starting by 18th July.
The Cricket World was soon to experience another form of cricket, the 3T Cricket, where the three teams holding 8 players in each would be playing in a single game.
Cricket South Africa (CSA) was to play its first match of the 3T Cricket on 27th June and the three teams were to be led by Kagiso Rabada, AB De Villiers, and Quinton De Kock.
The 3T cricket had been postponed due to the worst health conditions caused by the Coronavirus and the new dates have been decided.
CSA announces revised dates for solidarity 3T-Cricket Cup
The matches were termed as the solidarity cup because it was to help those affected with the crisis in worst economic conditions by the Coronavirus pandemic.
“It’s very exciting to get live cricket featuring our top players back on our TV screens again. I can’t think of a more appropriate day on which to hold this game than Nelson Mandela Day when its prime objective is to raise funds for those who have been badly affected by the coronavirus,” CSA acting chief executive Dr Jacques Faul, was quoted as saying in Eyewitness News.
“It is still nearly three weeks away, so it also gives our players more time to prepare properly and to minimise the chance of injuries,” he stated.
“I would like to thank the government and our own medical team once again for everything they have done to make a return to training and playing possible and I would also like to add special thanks to the incredible sponsors involved in this event for their continued commitment towards the match and its beneficiary, the Hardship Fund,” Faul added.
