JOHANNESBURG – Despite the off-field drama and numerous changes announced around the national team, Cricket South Africa are forging ahead with preparations for the Proteas’ big tour to India next month, with a 15-player group heading to India next week for a week-long spin camp.
The group includes Aiden Markram and Temba Bavuma, who are both likely to feature in the Proteas teams which will tour India later in September to play three T20 internationals and three Tests.
The 15 players and five support staff, headed by former Proteas coach Russell Domingo which includes Cape Cobras head coach Ashwell Prince and his predecessor Paul Adams, will head to Bengaluru for the camp that starts on August 17.
The camp has been an annual trip arranged by CSA, to help accelerate the readiness and experience of players and coaches in conditions in which SA teams have struggled recently.
Two SA A teams will also be heading to India later this month to play five one-day matches and then two four-day games against their Indian counterparts.
