Ali Bacher, who has been former South Africa captain and an important figure in his country’s cricket administration and has appreciated India for playing the ongoing series amidst the global pandemic.
“I don’t believe any other country will come to South Africa now [in the pandemic]. I don’t believe so,” he said. He also added “We have had experiences before. This is an indication of the great closeness between Indian and South African cricket, which started in 1991.”
England had to abandon their tour of South Africa in 2020 due to Covid fears while Australia called off their first tour since Sandpapergate in 2021 due to health-related concerns.
