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.
