England’s cricket tour of Sri Lanka is the latest overseas sport fixture to be postponed because of the coronavirus.
The test series, which attracts a big following of fans using specialist tour operators, has been called off in order to get players home as soon as possible to be with their families.
It is likely to be rescheduled to early next year.
All Premier League and EFL games are suspended until 3 April. The Euro 2020 tournament, which takes place in June and July, may be rescheduled to next year.
Among other major events cancelled are the Australian, Vietnam and Bahrain Grand Prix, and next week’s Uefa Champions League and Europa League games.
Rob Slawon, sports travel director at Sportsbreaks.com said: “It’s obviously a hugely challenging time for the sports travel industry given the number of cancellations and travel restrictions which have been imposed.
“As has been the case with cancellations and postponements, we are expecting things to move quickly once fixtures are reinstated.”
