England’s tour of South Africa was plunged into turmoil on Sunday morning when the delayed first one-day international was cancelled because of more positive Covid-19 tests.

Two members of the staff at the Vineyard Hotel, where both teams are based in what is supposed to be a bio-secure bubble, were revealed to have tested positive for the virus to follow a third South African player also testing positive.

That meant that both the England and South Africa teams did not make the 45-minute journey from their Cape Town base to Boland Park in Paarl where they were due to finally get the series underway.
