The Secondary Schools Cricket League (SSCL) has officially cancelled its PowerGen sponsored InterCol T20 competition as well as its Flow T10 tournament for 2020.
The decisions were made during an SSCL meeting on Monday.
The SSCL was hoping to still play the InterCol T20 and Flow T10 later in the year. However, those plans had to be scrapped.
“We don’t want to take the chance of bringing out the children and putting them at risk of infection,” said SSCL president Surujdath Mahabir.
“We don’t want to endanger lives and brings kids out in a situation that will be unsafe. With the need for social distancing to continue, we don’t want to put the children at risk,” he added.
The league portion of the SSCL season was completed before the Covid-19 pandemic forced the shutdown of sports worldwide. Shiva Boys Hindu College won the league and were going for the double. However, those plans had to be put on hold.
