The Ministry of Sport approved cricket’s resumption along with six other non-contact sports including tennis, swimming, rock climbing, angling, canoeing and gymnastics.
The statement reads: “These sport bodies have submitted their plans, indicating their state of readiness and their commitment to adhere to stringent health protocols that they will implement in accordance with the prescribed regulations and directions.
“The sport bodies are urged to take note of and implement the comments from the Health authorities, as applies.”
CSA were embarrassed last week when sports minister Nathi Mthethwa put an end to their plans after they announced the 3Team Cricket competition - a newly formatted version of the game featuring three teams, playing over 36 overs in two halves - without having gotten approval from the government.
However, beyond the 3TC event - which may be moved from Centurion, which the government has declared a "hotspot" for the coronavirus, to Potchefstroom - CSA will also be keen to get the national players back training again.
Acting CEO Jacques Faul says: “The path has been paved for our players to make a safe return to training particularly through the efforts of our medical team lead by Dr Shuaib Manjra.”
