Road Safety World Series has been called off due to the coronavirus outbreak. With the COVID-19 spreading like a wildfire, the organizers have decided to postpone the tournament to May or October, subject to players’ availability.

Muttiah Muralitharan, Marvan Atapattu, and Rangana Herath have already left for Sri Lanka. The other overseas cricketers are likely to fly out of India later on Thursday or Friday.

The Road Safety World Series has managed to create a frenzy among cricket lovers with some of the legendary names in world cricket like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Brian Lara, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Jonty Rhodes, to name a few, taking everyone to a nostalgic ride on the field.

While immense anticipation and hype were surrounding the tournament, the ardent cricket fans will hope the situation improves, and the remaining matches of the competition could be played later in the year.

Even though the official announcement is yet to be made, the report in Sportstar suggests that the decision to cancel Road Safety World Series, for now, was taken after the involved cricketers had a long meeting with the organizers in Mumbai.
