Match delayed due to positive tests from hotel staff.

No news relating to how long the delay is.

EDIT - game is now off. The tour is likely to be called off as well.

The likes of Archer, Stokes and Sam Curran must be delighted they flew back after the T20's.

With the others due to return on Thursday, can't see them putting that date in jeopardy.

Fly back and comply with strict quarantine at home? Or fly back after 10-14 days of self isolation?

Members of tour party may be positive

Looks like two of the England squad have now tested positive for Covid.

It is not looking likely the rest of the series will proceed, with such short turnaround times and travel involved.

So frustrating, the players must be pretty fed up by now. Having to endure bubble after bubble and then they get let down by others it seems. Let's hope they can have a decent Christmas and let their hair down a bit.

I can only look on in envy at the fact that our game is off but in Australia not only are they playing but they are playing in front of a decent sized crowd.

Helps that the Aussies now have practically zero cases of Covid. Tough lockdowns when needed and practically no flights into the country.

been just half measure after half measure here, and plenty of idiots and naive others around to keep sharing..........


what was it I read the other day, police broke up a party with 200+ people but were so well prepared everyone escaped and there were zero arrests! the rules are too flimsy and broken too often with little fear of consequence. schools continue to be a priority for empty head Boris and his cronies, a good way to spread the virus and I gather now the ESFA (fund schools/colleges) want at least 50% of FE to be delivered in classrooms!

And so much for "work from home if you can", my employers are dancing about with in and out, in and out like the hokey cokey when we've ALWAYS been able to work from home since our IT team enabled it in March, but the roads barely strike me as being as quiet as you'd expect if everyone who could work from home was........

South Africa appear to have been somewhat slapdash in their Covid preparations. Likewise the hotel. Are not staff at the hotel under strict supervision? How did one of the hotel staff contract the virus? Do they just go home and mix with other people?

During the games in England Sky took the viewers through all the scrupulous preparations that had been made to ensure social distancing in the hotels. Tests and limited overs matches took place against 3 visiting sides and not a single positive Covid test. What kind of preparations have S.A. made? Shambolic.

Didnít realise that. I heard some radio commentary and put the noise down to sound effects!

I think Ali was being ironic and got in there before Jock said it.
