The India A tour of South Africa will continue.

“We are in contact with the BCCI and there is no prejudice to the Indian tour to South Africa at this stage. We will, of course, continue to monitor developments regarding the spread of the virus and keep the BCCI informed. As CSA we remain committed to ensuring that all visiting teams and Proteas players are afforded a safe environment to play cricket,” Lawson Naidoo, the head of CSA, told Cricbuzz on Friday (November 26) evening.

“The distance between the two places is over 1000 miles and we have been told that there is no immediate health hazard. We have had discussions with the CSA officials and the medical team. The team hotel and the ground area have been sanitised and we’re in a bio-bubble,” team manager Anil Patel told Cricbuzz on Friday. “At this stage, we have decided to stay on.”
