Cricket South Africa (CSA) confirmed on Friday that three unidentified people have tested positive for Covid-19 after a series of tests were conducted on the Proteas Women’s National High-Performance squad and support staff.

CSA revealed that 34 Covid-19 tests were conducted ahead of the Proteas women’s first training camp, starting on Monday at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria.

“The players and support staff that have tested positive will now self-isolate for a period of 10 days and will take no part in the training camp,” read the CSA statement.

“They have nil to mild symptoms as our medical team continue to closely monitor them in accordance with CSA’s Covid-19 Steering Committee protocols to ensure their well-being. The players’ return to train and play program will be guided by the CSA Medical Committee’s protocols.”

Those who’ve tested negative will participate the training camp, which gets underway from Sunday, for a week-long skills-based training camp.

The players will then return to their respective provinces for individual training from 3-14 August.
