COVID-19 all clear for South African cricket team | Cricket News – Times of India

CAPE TOWN: South Africa’s limited overs team have returned an all clear after the third round of COVID-19 testing on the eve of their opening match against England at Newlands on Friday but have lost all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius to injury.
The two players who tested positive last week were not part of the tested group and remain in isolation and are being monitored, said a statement from Cricket South Africa. “They are progressing well and are in good health” it added, without naming them.
The fourth round of testing was conducted on Thursday with results expected later.
The possibility of infections in the South African camp at one stage threatened the six-match English tour. The two countries are playing three Twenty 20 international and three One-Day Internationals at Newlands and in Paarl.
Pretorius, 31, with 22 ODI caps, suffered a hamstring injury during a practice at Newlands and is expected to be out for a month. No replacement will be named, CSA added.
