Momentum Proteas Mark First Day of Training in New Zealand

by | Feb 18, 2022

The Momentum Proteas marked their first day out Management Isolation and Quarantine with their first training session at Lincoln University in Christchurch, since arriving in New Zealand a week ago ahead of next month’s ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup.

Following the host nations shift into “Phase 2” of the Covid-19 response, the quarantine period was reduced from 10 to 7 days, subject to certain health measures being satisfied.

South Africa were then eligible for exit on Wednesday, 16 February 2022, having completed the mandatory time.

Momentum Proteas batter, Lara Goodall, said: “Having being confined indoors for over a week, it was good to get out there on the park and have a refresher. It was a nice day, nice conditions and the setting was good, so we were very happy with that.”

Speaking on the World Cup, Goodall reveals the team are preparing to top perform at the global event.

“Our thoughts have always been on the World Cup. With the West Indies series, we took our thinking into that series and the World Cup has been part of the process for quite a while now. Also for us to arrive here and to fine tune our skills and eventually getting out there and performing.”
