South Africa Filed a Formal Complaint Against Australia in the ICC
Cricket South Africa (CSA) was disappointed when Corona postponed the tour of Cricket Australia (CA) due to fears. This time around, however, South Africa has filed a formal complaint against Australia with the International Cricket Council (ICC), the governing body of cricket.
Australia’s three-match Test series on the tour of South Africa was part of the World Test Championship. The Aussies would have had a chance to play in the final of the World Test Championship if they had achieved good results from the series. However, despite not having a chance to play in the final of the World Test Championship, South Africa was looking to play the series.
The suspension of the series has caused a lot of financial loss to South Africa. However, the CA postponed the visit indefinitely, citing an increased risk of coronavirus in South Africa. The CA has postponed the visit on the advice of the Medical Board of the Ministry of Health of his country.
Therefore South African Cricket Board filed a formal complaint against the Australian cricket board in the ICC. The CSA has been approached by the ICC to take steps to organize the series. The CSA sent a letter to the ICC last week. In a written letter to the ICC, CSA’s acting chief executive, Foletesi Moseki, said: He demanded that an investigation be carried out by appointing an independent expert to determine whether the health risks in South Africa were so severe as to postpone the visit to Australia.
The letter further said that the ICC would have to look into whether Australia had violated the terms of the Test Championship and the FTP.
Meanwhile, if the ICC does not take any steps to organize the series in the end, the CSA has also demanded financial compensation.
The fight for the first-ever World Test Championship will end on April 30 this year. The two teams that are ahead in the points table will play the final. The New Zealand cricket team has been confirmed to play in the final of the World Test Championship after the Australian cricket team canceled its tour of South Africa.
