India’s Tour of South Africa: Behind Closed Doors.
According to an official statement provided by Cricket South Africa three Tests and three ODIs. Will be played in front of empty stadiums.
Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases around the world. As well as the fourth wave domestically, CSA and the BCCI have taken a mutual decision. To protect the players and the trip by not selling tickets for the India vs Proteas series.
The first Test will take place on December 26 at Centurion.
“This decision was made in order to minimize any breaches. That could jeopardize the trip from a Covid-risk standpoint, as well as to ensure a hazard-free bubble atmosphere.” CSA stated in a statement.
In addition, as part of its ongoing efforts to expand cricket’s reach. The CSA is looking into other public viewing activations that will allow a small number of fans. To enjoy the summer cricket atmosphere with other fans via activation sites. While still adhering to the strictest safety measures and exercising duty of care.
As soon as the necessary approvals have been obtained, the CSA will notify the possible alternate public viewing activations.

“We acknowledge the interest expressed by fans and other stakeholders, in being able to return to stadiums.” Said Pholetsi Moseki, CSA Acting Chief Executive Officer.
“As a result, we implore all sports fans to take extreme caution during these unique circumstances.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to encourage all South Africans, to continue spreading the positive messages of VACCINATION, because this is the only way we can truly restore our country’s high economic activity. Which will help the government open up the economy and all forms of economic activity. Including allowing more fans back into stadiums “Added he.
