South Africa and West Indies officials remain hopeful that a South African Test and T20I tour of the West Indies will take place this year - despite announcing on Wednesday that tours by South Africa's women and the men's A team had been postponed.

The women were due to play five one-day internationals in Jamaica and Trinidad, starting at the end of May, while the men's A team was due to start its tour in Antigua in June. Both tours were postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
