Funny thing is that even the Aussies don't stop their international cricket for BBL but Afghans do, that's as pathetic as it can get honestly.

Can't the ZC and NET board set up the series now in Jan, as the Afghans won't turn up anyways?

Also I wonder when will Afghans play their super league matches, they've only played 3 so far...they have a lot to make up for and the last thing I want is for the ICC to consider % winnings in case the series don't go ahead. It should simply be points, nothing else.

Afghans basically hold boards to ransom and get away with it. No one cares for them unless Rashid Khan or Mujeeb is playing.

I say tough shit. If those players are not available, then they are not available. Deal with it.

1st SA-Netherlands ODI rained out. 5 points. I wonder if the tour will be cancelled

^ It's cancelled (postponed) now, confirmed.

We might struggle to fulfil our away tour to Sri Lanka in January if this flight ban continues.

Oman and the UAE are currently playing ODIs in Namibia as well, that looks likely to get cancelled too.

I hope things normalize by January. If so, then at least Zimbabwe won't have any cancellations.

I think this is a bit of a knee jerk reaction by some countries. I can see European countries and the US still reporting massively large number of covid cases as compared to African countries. I understand it's more about the varient, but then covid is an endemic now anyways, there will be many varients coming, so what's new in this?

Looks like Super League will end up being decided by % of points earned and not absolute points like they did for the WTC. So many games have been postponed there is no way to make them up and also have equal number of matches for all teams.

Most likely, there seems to be no urgency amongst any of the teams to play out these games quickly.
