Two South African players in culture camp test positive for COVID-19
There were no replacements made for the two players who tested positive. All those unable to attend the camp will join the proceedings virtually

Cricket South Africa (CSA) can confirm that 50 COVID-19 tests were performed on players and support staff prior to attending the Proteas men’s team culture camp in Skukuza from 18-22 August. The testing is in line with fulfilling the organization’s obligation and commitment to control the spread of the virus.

Two players have returned positive tests. They will unfortunately miss the camp as they have begun the isolation protocol. While both players are asymptomatic, CSA’s medical team will continue to regularly follow up with them to ensure their health and well-being.

There were no replacements made for the two players who tested positive. All those unable to attend the camp will join the proceedings virtually.

Proteas team culture camp squad:
