Centurion – Cricket South Africa on Wednesday welcomed president Cyril Ramaphosa’s announcement that stadiums can host crowds at 50 percent of a venue’s capacity.

Ramaposa stated in an address to the country on Tuesday night, that as long as spectators provide proof of vaccination sports stadiums they can return to stadia.

“This is music to our ears,” CSA’s Board chairman, Lawson Naidoo said.

Cricket SA said that although the number of spectators has been increased, it would comply with the vaccination mandate that no person may gain access to any cricket stadia without presentation (printed or electronically) of the government issued “fully vaccinated” certificate.
