A 24-member South Africa Women’s squad will begin in a week-long skill-based training camp from July 27 in a bio-bubble environment ahead of their proposed tour of England in September, Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced on Thursday (July 23).
Held at Powerade High Performance Centre, the South Africa Women’s camp will also include pre-season medial assessments. On completion of a week’s training, the players will return to their respective provinces for individual training from August 3 to 14.
Following that, they will come together fora two-week camp from August 16 – 27.
“We were very encouraged by the success of the health protocols in the lead-up to the 3TC Solidarity Cup and on the actual match day as well. Safety remains our priority at all times for players, support staff and all other people involved,” CSA Director of Cricket Graeme Smith said.
“The projected tour of England will have a heavy emphasis on the 50-over format as we start preparing for the ICC Women’s World Cup which is still scheduled to be played in New Zealand early next year. We have been through a frustrating period with our Momentum Proteas not able to build on the excellent form they showed at the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup and next week’s camp represents an important new starting point,” Smith added.
