  • The three-match series was to be played be in May 2021

The world champions were scheduled to visit the Netherlands to play the 50-over series next year.

Earlier this month, the Dutch hierarchy confirmed their commitment to hosting the matches despite the financially-crippling prospect of setting up a bio-secure environment as there were no other obvious alternative windows in the calendar and the results count towards worldwide cricket's new one-day Super League and qualification for the 2023 World Cup.

In addition to the COVID situation, playing the series in front of limited or no audience was not a viable prospect for The Royal Dutch Cricket Association (KNCB), "and the European Central Bank showed their understanding of this situation".

'We are very grateful for the cooperation we received from the European Central Bank to make this happen'.

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the Royal Dutch Cricket Association (KNCB) have made a decision to postpone the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Super League ODI series scheduled for end of May 2021 to May 2022.

The away fixtures against India that follow from February onwards - now cut from five Tests to four plus eight white-ball internationals - is also the subject of debate behind the scenes regarding the location and the prospect of a second wave of Covid-19 in the subcontinent.

World Cup Super League will determine qualification for the 2023 World Cup in India.

Ashley Giles, Managing director of England's men's cricket, added: "It is disappointing that we are unable to play the Netherlands in May in what would be England's first visit to Holland".

"Hopefully, with the prospect of crowds returning to sport soon, we can rearrange the three matches in 2022 and showcase global cricket to capacity crowds".

'I am sure many fans will want to travel across from England and be part of this historic ODI series'.
