CSA suspends Amateur Cricket

Cricket South Africa (CSA) today confirmed all forms of amateur cricket has been suspended until further notice.

All clubs, schools and KFC Mini-Cricket has been put on hold for at least the next two weeks as recommended by the CSA Medical Committee due to the adjusted level 4 lockdown amid the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Acting Head of Cricket Pathways Edward Khoza said: “Fortunately most of our organized cricket is in recess at the moment but there are private academies that operate throughout the year.

“The safety of all participants is always the priority and Cricket South Africa, together with its Members, are exercising their duty of care by halting all forms of amateur cricket,” he added.

The resumption of amateur cricket will be confirmed at a later stage.
