Earl Eddings admitted there are challenges dealing with CSA due to the state of the game in the country

Earl Eddings, the Cricket Australia chairman, has stressed that the safety of the national team’s players and staff will not be compromised in any way in deliberations around how to handle the looming Test trip to South Africa, with all parties closely watching the ongoing progress of Sri Lanka’s tour.

The South Africa squad to face Sri Lanka has been affected by players testing positive for Covid-19 and needing to be removed from the group, a further setback for Cricket South Africa’s plans after the recent England tour was forced to be abandoned due to problems around the integrity of the biosecurity bubble the tourists and home side were embedded in for white-ball matches.

ESPNcricinfo has reported that there have been informal discussions floating the possibility of the three Tests being moved to Perth, given South Africa’s strong recent playing record in Australia, but Eddings insisted that CA’s intention was to fulfil its commitment to tour.

However, he was equally adamant that there was no room for compromise on the health and safety standards being demanded to ensure Australia’s players and support staff were not placed at undue risk on an overseas tour at a time when international travel has all but ground to a halt due to Covid-19 and border closures.
