“This time, it is a bit different. The virus threat is still unknown and we had to take permission for the tour from both Indian and South African governments. The tour is not long as we are not playing the T20I series now. So, the families will not be travelling with them. The good thing is that there is no hard quarantine rule in South Africa at this moment,” a BCCI official told InsideSport.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli has pulled out from the three-match ODI series starting January 19 in Paarl. According to a report, Kohli has told BCCI that the tour coincides with his daughter’s 1st birthday so he won’t be available for the series.

“Yes, Kohli has asked for a small break in January to spend some time with his family. It effectively means that he would miss the ODI series against South Africa, the source said.

It should be noted that Virat Kohli has been removed from ODI captaincy and replaced with Rohit Sharma, who will miss the Test series with a hamstring injury. But the newly-appointed Test vice-captain will be joining the team ahead of the ODI series.
