Cricket South Africa (CSA) and Koninklijke Nederlandse Cricket Bond (KNCB) say they are aware of reports being circulated regarding the Netherlands tour to South Africa being cancelled or postponed. 

The Netherlands who is currently on a three-match series tour of South Africa won the toss and decided to bowl in the first one-day international against South Africa at SuperSport Park on Friday.

In a statement, both boards confirmed that following updated information, it is highly unlikely that the visiting team will be able to fly out of South Africa over the weekend. 

“The KNCB is reviewing all of its options, while prioritising the physical and mental well-being of its players. A decision on the continuation of the series will follow in the next 24 to 48 hours, while all flight options are being considered.”

The boards say they will not comment further until a definite resolution has been reached.
