Quadrangular 50-over series scheduled to be played in Chiang Mai in April has been called off
The Cricket Association of Thailand have today announced that the Women's Quadrangular 50-over Series that was scheduled to be played between Thailand, Ireland, Netherlands and Zimbabwe in Chiang Mai from 3rd to 11th April has been called off because of concerns over the impact of COVID-19 in Thailand and across the world.
The competition had been arranged as a warm-up event for four teams who will be playing in the ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier in Sri Lanka in July but the CAT have taken the decision to cancel in the interests of player safety after ongoing discussions with the relevant medical authorities and the Sports Authority of Thailand.
KNCB's High Performance Manager Roland Lefebvre: "Although extremely disappointing for everyone involved, we feel the right decision has been made by the Cricket Association of Thailand. Player welfare always comes first and we have to take the implications of the Coronavirus outbreak very serious. The KNCB will review the preparation for the team in the lead up to the World Cup Qualifiers in Sri Lanka later this summer.
