MACQUES Ackerman had been included in the Cricket SA (CSA) Proteas High Performance training squad, having been accidentally omitted in the initial team.
The Dolphin batsman will join among some of his teammates, Andile Phehlukwayo, Keshav Maharaj and Khaya Zondo, in a local training session.
According to CSA, the session will be conducted by identified coaches in small monitored groups from nearest franchise teams and they will be done in accordance with the guidelines set out by the governing body’s Steering Committee.
The initiative has followed approval from Sports Minister Nathi Mthethwa for teams to return to training.
”Our prevention programme, besides the regular testing of players and support staff, is predicated on personal hygiene measures and creating a sanitised ecosystem, ” said CSA Chief Medical Officer Dr Shuaib Manjra.
”Covid-19 compliance managers at each venue have assumed responsibility to ensure all the elements of the protocol are implemented.”
