Covid-19 did put a stop to live cricket for almost half of the year but now tours and series are being resumed as usual. English cricket team is set to tour the land of South Africa to play three ODI matches and three T20i matches. The tour was first put into suspicion but CSA pleaded to it’s parliament for the tour to go as planned to which the parliament obliged. Confirming to the new normal, the England team will stay in an environment that is safe and sound.
