Cricket South Africa's (CSA) acting chief executive, Jacques Faul has welcomed the moves taken by the International Cricket Council (ICC)  board to provide clarity on the windows for major ICC events to be played over the next few years.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the ICC have been forced to make a number of changes to the upcoming schedule.

With this year's ICC Men's T20 World Cup scheduled for October in Australia now cancelled, the next two editions will take place in the October-November window in 2021 and 2022 respectively.

The 2023 ICC Men’s World Cup will take place in October-November 2023 while The 2021 ICC Women’s World Cup remains in New Zealand in February 2021 as originally scheduled.

“These decisions provide just the clarity we need not only to revise our own Future Tours Programme but to see that our Proteas Men and Proteas Women have the best possible preparation for in these important tournaments,” said Faul.

“A number of series for both our Proteas Men and Women have had to be postponed because of the coronavirus and I would like to assure all our stakeholders that we are planning for an exciting future both at international and domestic level.”
