The first ODI between England and South Africa has been called off due to a breach in the coronavirus protocols during the T20 series.

According to the details, the first One-Day International between South Africa and England on Friday postponed to Sunday. The decision followed after a South African player tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

England and South Africa were scheduled to face each other in the first ODI match of the series at Newlands in Cape Town.

Earlier England- 192 for 1 (Malan 99*, Buttler 67*) beat South Africa- 191 for 3 (van der Dussen 74*, du Plessis 52*) by nine wickets in the third T20 match.

England’s Malan and Buttler brushed aside their efforts with an unbeaten 167-run partnership of their own, the highest second-wicket stand in T20Is.

Malan was unbeaten on 99 from just 47 deliveries, while Buttler remained at crease with 67 off 46 to hand England a nine-wicket victory with 14 balls to spare.

Malan was titled as the Player of the Match for the second time in a row, and Player of the Series.

Chris Jordan came out on top once again who took the outright lead as England’s leading wicket-taker in T20Is with 66 on record.

1st ODI – 6 Dec

2nd ODI – 7 Dec
