The South African Cricket Board (SACB) said in a statement that one of the players tested positive for the corona, while the other two players were sent to quarantine for being with him, while the other players were being monitored by the South African Cricket Board’s medical team. In order to ensure their health and fitness, the identities of the three players have not been revealed.
The South African Cricket Board has not yet announced a replacement for the player who fell victim to Corona, but two new players will join the group for intrasquad practice matches on Saturday.
The closed-door series kicks off with the first T20 match in Cape Town on November 27.
