South Africa Cricketers Resume Training After Coronavirus-Enforced Break

Cricket South Africa (CSA) have announced that a 44-member men's high performance training squad officially returned to training on Monday following approval from the country's sports minister.

The players will train in small monitored groups with identified coaches from their nearest franchise teams, CSA said in an official statement.

The sessions will be in accordance with the guidelines set out by the CSA COVID-19 Steering Committee and approved by the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD), an arm of the National Department of Health.

"We engaged with the NICD who were comfortable with our protocols and responses to their queries for further details in some respects. Our prevention program, besides the regular testing of players and support staff, is predicated on personal hygiene measures and creating a sanitised ecosystem," CSA Chief Medical Officer, Dr Shuaib Manjra said.

"COVID-19 compliance managers at each venue have assumed responsibility to ensure all the elements of the protocol are implemented," he added.
