South African Lizelle Lee was forced to postpone her wedding because the country was closed nationwide due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a normal scenario, Lizelle would have completed her wedding plans with fiancé Tanja Cronje. Instead, she is in her parents’ house in the farming town of Ermelo and solves a 2000-piece puzzle to keep busy during the national ban, Cricket South Africa said in a press release.
As weddings are on hold worldwide due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple, who have been together for almost four and a half years, should close their ties on April 10. This day is now marked as number 15 of the 21 day lock.
Incidentally, this is the longest time the opener has spent at home in the past three years.
According to the original schedule, Lee would have ended the home series against Australia, which consisted of three ODIs and as many T20Is. However, this was postponed due to the outbreak of the corona virus, which has killed more than 50,000 people worldwide to date.
