Dynamos have called off their tour of Malawi because of the Cyclone Idai.

The Glamour Boys were supposed to travel to the North Eastern country this week to wind-up their pre-season preparations but will now play local teams.

Club spokesperson Tinashe Farawo has confirmed the cancellation, saying: “Yes, we have called off the tour because of what is happening. We don’t want to put out players’ lives on risk. We will now play local oppositions until the start of the season.”

The natural disaster has already claimed hundreds of lives and damaged the infrastructure in Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

Meanwhile, Dynamos drew 1-1 against new boys TelOne in a practice match played at Ascot stadium on Sunday.
