Men’s High Performance squad returns to training

The Cricket South Africa (CSA) men’s High Performance training squad officially returned to training on Monday following approval from the Minister of Sport, Arts & Culture, the Honourable Nathi Mthethwa on Friday.

The players will train 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), an arm of the National Department of Health.

CSA Chief Medical Officer, Dr Shuaib Manjra said:

“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.”

Plans for the commencement of training for the women’s High Performance Training Squad are underway and will be relayed as soon as possible.

The training sessions will be closed to the media until CSA makes provision for a media opportunity, this includes photographers.
