With the global picture becoming increasingly complicated in terms of the COVID-19 epidemic, competition organisers have decided to move ahead with plans to delay the tournament with no new date being confirmed.

Saigon Heat, the competition’s Vietnamese representative, had been due to play Kuala Lumpur Dragons in an away fixture on March 20.

The 2019 to 2020 ABL season first began on November 16 2019, with 10 teams being scheduled to participate until March 28, although it is now unclear when the season will end because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
