Two South African Players Test Positive for COVID-19

Two unnamed players of the South African team has tested positive for COVID-19 despite being asymptomatic. 

After having performed 50 tests on their players and staff in their culture camp in Skukuza, Cricket South Africa has confirmed that two of those turned out positive. However, the CSA has decided to keep the names of the two COVID-19 positive players so as to protect their identities. 

As per the CSA’s official statement, ‘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. The testing is in line with fulfilling the organization's obligation and commitment to control the spread of the virus’.  

The camp in Skukuza was mainly directed to strengthen the bond and trust among the players and the board. As there had been issues in the CSA for allegedly having a racist culture, the board has indeed taken a move to unite their players and let them play while being under the care of CSA. 

Apparently, Proteas former captain Faf du Plessis was not able to attend the five-day camp which was held from August 18 to August 22 due to the birth of his second child. To learn more about how cricket is played, head over to Betwala.
