South Africa: Cricket South Africa Confirms That Proteas Players Are Back in Training

With lockdown restrictions eased around the country and various sports codes now allowed to train again, Cricket South Africa (CSA) has announced that its High Performance squad, which includes many current Proteas , trained for the first time in months on Monday.

This was after the go-ahead was given to CSA by the Department of Sport and Recreation.

Training regimes will see players work in small monitored groups with identified coaches from their nearest franchise teams.

These 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).

"We engaged with the NICD who were comfortable with our protocols and responses to their queries for further details in some respects. Our prevention programme, besides the regular testing of players and support staff, is predicated on personal hygiene measures and creating a sanitised ecosystem. Covid-19 compliance managers at each venue have assumed responsibility to ensure all the elements of the protocol are implemented," CSA's chief medical officer, Dr Shuaib Manjra, commented.

CSA also confirmed that plans for the commencement of training for the women's High Performance Training Squad were underway.
