Update Inaugural Africa T20 Cup called off due to COVID-19 scare

The inaugural ACA Africa T20 Cup, scheduled to begin at Nairobi in 10 day's time, has become the latest cricket tournament to be called off owing to the ongoing global Novel Coronavirus pandemic. The tournament, which was to have featured hosts Kenya along with Uganda, Nigeria, Ghana, Mozambique, Cameroon, Malawi and Botswana, has been postponed indefinitely as part of the Kenyan government's efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus.

The decision to postpone the event, taken by the Kenyan authorities in consultation with the Africa Cricket Board, makes the tournament the latest in a series of events to be called off due to the crisis. To date, the most high-profile of these has been the BCB's celebratory centenary games between two invitational Asia and World XIs which were likewise postponed today along with Nepal's Everest Premier League which was put on hold last week, and the second round of the ICC's CWC Challenge League Group A, which had been slated to begin in Kuala Lumpur this week.
