Cricket South Africa has confirmed that the Indian cricket teams tour of South Africa will continue with a few adjustments.
In a statement, CSA says the arrival of the India team will be moved out by a week, to allow for effective logistical planning.
India will play three One Day Internationals and three Tests against the Proteas – However, the four scheduled T20 Matches will be rescheduled in the new year, as part of the joint MoU.
CSA says the allocation of match venues will still be in respect of the Bubble Safe Environment (BSEs) and therefore the decision on the allocations will take into account the need for safer playing environments.
“With the Proteas men’s team having already participated in no less than eight international cricket BSEs, CSA is pleased to announce that this tour will also take place under the strictest COVID-19 guidelines, as contained in the BSE protocols.”
CSA’s Acting Chief Executive Officer Pholetsi Moseki has thanked the Board of Cricket Commission of India (BCCI) for making the tour happen.
“Even under the most uncertain times, the Boards kept the light of hope alive and kept us anticipating that this tour will indeed take place. For us as CSA it is always a meeting of old friends when the Proteas take on India, but we will still present the fans with a compelling proposition and a great spectacle to watch.”
CSA says it will confirm the venues for the tour.
