New Delhi: Indian cricket team may travel to South Africa in August in which Cricket South Africa (CSA) can use bio-safe models to protect players and others from the corona virus.

The bio-safe models should accommodate about 350 people in a sports venue. These people include players, broadcasters, media personnel and other staff.

CSA Chief Medical Officer Shuaib Manjra said the model would be suggested when India plays a three-match Twenty20 series.

"Three T20s with India should be an ideal opportunity to develop such a model," he said. We can't think about it at that time. Then there will be spectators around the stadium. So we can create a bio-safe environment and play cricket in it.
