ODI International Series Greenlight for England
Sporting events worldwide continue battling against the Covid-19 Pandemic, with confirmed infections prompting immediate cancellations. International cricket has combatted the coronavirus beyond expectations, with the prolong streak coming into question for December. Medical personnel testing for Covid-19 located positive infections on December 4th, forcing the series-opening round into cancellation. Details on the rescheduling of these matches came after medical personnel determined negative results for South Africa & England. This has enabled the England & South Africa ODI Series to be rescheduled for December 6th in Paarl. Cape Town will host the remaining matches on December 7th and 9th.
Updates regarding the medical conditions of South Africa’s cricketers was provided, noting that Proteas Squad Members have returned negative results & are ready for competition against England. Emphasis was issued that testing will continue daily until the conclusion of the South Africa & England ODI Series.
Possible outbreaks of coronavirus haven’t stricken England’s National Cricket Team, with cricketers respecting Covid-19 measures for physical distancing. It’s allowed for most athletic personalities employed with England to avoid infection. Concerns rose tenfold when learning that South Africa players were positive with Covid-19, which follows after national outbreaks of Covid-19. Healthcare concerns amongst English cricketers have grown since arriving in South Africa, with players suggesting that ECB Governors are testing protocol limits to extreme levels. Infection amongst England’s cricketers is possible in South Africa.
Don’t Break the Rules.
South Africa’s National Cricket Team has refused to identify the individuals that tested positive for coronavirus publicly. Internal sources indicate those players have severe symptoms & aren’t expected to appear in South Africa’s T20 Series for 2021. The reasoning for not identifying these individuals is because protocols would have been broken.
CSA Legislation around Covid-19 created conditions that allow players to quarantine & remain entertained. Whichever players contracted coronavirus likely attended outdoor events after losing to England last week by 3-0, continued infections from South Africa will mark the immediate departure of England’s National Cricket Team & cancellation of remaining matches.
