South Africa touched down in St Lucia Tuesday for the two-Test Cricket series against West Indies starting next week, marking only the second international series in the Caribbean since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The squad, who will also play five Twenty/20 Internationals in Grenada, will now undergo three days of quarantine and must return two negative PCR tests before being allowed to train.
Following quarantine, the squad is expected to play a two-day practice match in preparation for the first Test, which gets underway on 10th June at the Daren Sammy National Stadium, Gros Islet.
The 19-man Test squad is being led by Dean Elgar for the first time while Temba Bavuma, has taken charge of the white-ball unit.
On South Africa’s last Test tour of the Caribbean in 2010, they beat the hosts 2-nil in a three-Test series, winning at Port of Spain and Bridgetown.
