South Africa is hosting England for three T20Is and ODIs each, starting on November 27. The English cricketers have arrived in South Africa and underwent the mandatory COVID-19 tests before entering the bio-secure bubble for them.
England Cricket's official Twitter account posted a video of all-rounder Ben Stokes getting the nasal swab test for COVID-19. His teammates can be heard laughing in the background of the clip.
“The lads have made it to South Africa! Raising hands. A different welcome to normal for @benstokes38", wrote England Cricket. The English players will have to stay quarantined for 10 days.
Stokes will go home from South Africa after the three-match T20I series which ends on December 1. Jofra Archer will also head home without taking part in the ODI series. Both the cricketers were part of the Indian Premier League (IPL), playing for Rajasthan Royals (RR).
