South Africa refuses to send women’s team to England


Manchester: Cricket South Africa (CSA) has refused to send its women’s team to England for a tour in September 2020. 

According to the details, CSA informed England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) that they will not be able to accept tour invitation. This decision was taken due to the current international travel regulations in place for South African national teams.

Meanwhile, ECB contracted a number of cricket boards to convince them to send their women teams to play in a bio-secure environment.

Unfortunately, India and South Africa have been unable to accept the invitation to tour but ECB remains committed to hosting women’s international cricket this summer.

ECB Managing Director of Women’s Cricket, Clare Connor said: “We are immensely disappointed that we are not yet able to confirm fixtures for England Women this summer due to India and South Africa being unable to travel.”

‘’We have been committed from the outset to deliver the same bio-secure standards for both men’s and women’s international cricket, an investment that included exclusive hotel use for teams, chartered flights and medical provisions,” she added.
