COVID-19 has smashed everything even if sports bodies/activities or economies and businesses. It has marked a full stop in front of all cricketing activities.
Cricketing scenarios have been paused and have been badly affected globally. The series, leagues, and tournaments got paused and still, there isn’t a major probability for kicking off although international cricket has been resumed behind closed doors after West Indies and England played a three-match test series.
Many of the series have already been postponed as recently, Australia vs West Indies has been postponed amidst the virus fears. The most recent to get called off amidst the fear is the Zimbabwe vs Afghanistan five-match T20I series.
The sides were to get featured in the series in August. The bells for the home-series were about to ring for Zimbabwe as the country was financially ready to host after having a wide fate of a poor cricketing economy among the countries.

“We were keen to see the imminent and safe return of cricket, but we understand the Government’s health concerns and accept that canceling the proposed tour is sensible and in the best interest of players, match officials, volunteers, service providers, fans and the wider community,” Zimbabwe Cricket Acting Managing Director Givemore Makoni said.
“We’ve been walking through (a financial plan) with the ICC,” Mukuhlani had told Cricbuzz. “We are on controlled funding and that has progressed very well. The restructuring of the organization has taken place, so we think that other than this COVID, we should be in a good space with our finances and that should allow more programs to take place,” he had added.
