England cricket officials are confident that their men’s team’s tour of Sri Lanka will be as scheduled, although the Sri Lankan team is currently in South Africa where some travel restrictions have been imposed amid the Corona epidemic.

Britain’s Health Minister Matt Hancock said on Wednesday that anyone who has been in South Africa for the last two weeks should go on segregation because new strains of the virus have been found there.

The England and Wales Cricket Board has received assurances that its players and staff returning from a tour of South Africa on December 10 will be exempted from this order, so that they do not have to remain on segregation during the festival season.
