The third Test match between England and South Africa at Kennington Oval has been suspended for Friday (9 September) due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Queen Elizabeth II, the UK's longest-serving monarch died at the age of 96 owing to episodic mobility problems.
Along with the international fixture, all four games of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy will not be played as well.
England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) took to Twitter to announce the latest development.
"Following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Friday's play between England and South Africa Men at The Oval, along with all scheduled matches in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, will not take place," the ECB said in a statement.
"For fixtures beyond Friday, updates will be provided in due course."
