Cricket South Africa (CSA) has announced that no fans will be allowed into the stadiums when the Proteas take on the touring Indians this summer.

CSA’s Pholetsi Moseki the cricketing body will also not be making any tickets available for the matches. 

“At this stage we would like to remind all cricket fans that the tour and the matches will still be broadcast on SuperSport and SABC platforms. In addition to this and as part of ongoing efforts to increase the reach of cricket, CSA is exploring other alternative public viewing activations which will ensure that a limited number of fans are able to enjoy the summer cricket atmosphere.” 

Moseki says CSA acknowledge the interest expressed by the fans and other stakeholders on being able to return to stadiums and want to assure all cricket fans that this decision was not taken lightly, but was instead taken in the best interest of the game and in the interest of the health and safety
