The testing is in keeping with fulfilling the organisation’s obligation and dedication to its responsibility of care to its group and to the broader public in controlling the unfold of the virus. 

The tour will consist of a 3 T20 internationals and three One-Day Internationals at Newlands and Boland Park in Paarl.   

In addition to the player having returned a positive end result, two different gamers had been thought of shut contacts based mostly on the danger evaluation undertaken by the medical group.

All three gamers have been positioned in speedy isolation in Cape Town as half of the Covid-19 protocols.

While all gamers are asymptomatic, CSA’s medical group will monitor them to make sure their well being and well-being. 

As confirmed in a media launch on Wednesday, at this stage, none of three gamers will probably be changed for the tour, however two alternative gamers will probably be included into the squad for the needs of the inter-squad apply matches that will probably be performed on Saturday, November 21.
