Wednesday, 4 March 2020 Little rest for Aussies after South Africa | Sky Australia Lifestyle It has been almost two months since Australia's leading men's cricketers, currently on tour in South Africa , played an international fixture at home.

Yacoob conceded the ever-changing nature of the pandemic could ruin Australia's tour of South Africa.

"The learning in relation to this virus changes all the time and as it changes things must change," Yacoob said.

"So far there is between the chair of CA and myself no doubt that the series will go ahead, but we have agreed also that the coronavirus is so changing, that we cannot predict what will happen. If things suddenly go down for the worse and we really can't do it and our experts say we can't do it and the other experts say we can't do it, we won't be able to."
