The board said that the positive outcome of the second player has nothing to do with the first positive result and the player has been provided reasonable living space, separate from the immediate effect. CSA said in a statement that Cricket South Africa wants to reiterate that the names of the affected players will not be revealed due to doctor-patient confidentiality.
He said that the team management and the CSA are in touch with their counterparts in the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) to ensure complete transparency and formulate the most responsible plan. CSA has also canceled the practice match to be held on Saturday.
