It is “highly unlikely” that Australia’s scheduled limited-overs tour of England and Scotland will go forward given the coronavirus pandemic, star batsman David Warner has stated.
Australia are scheduled to tackle Scotland in a T20 on June 29 earlier than enjoying three T20s and three ODIs towards world champions England from July 3.
“At the moment it’s highly unlikely we’re going to go over there given what’s happened in England,” Warner instructed cricket.com.au.
The England and Wales Cricket Board has suspended all cricket within the nation till not less than July 1 and England’s Test sequence with the West Indies set for June has already been rescheduled.
The ECB chief govt Tom Harrison stated any additional delays to their season would probably imply “losing cricket rather than rescheduling.”
Australia has already seen a two-Test tour of Bangladesh that had been scheduled for June known as off, whereas a deliberate limited-overs residence sequence towards Zimbabwe in August can also be unlikely to proceed.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has simply recovered from the Covid-19 an infection and Warner stated beating the illness ought to now be the precedence.
“He’s back up on his feet now and that’s fantastic news, but there’s a lot more to this than just sport being played. The biggest picture is making sure we’re doing all the right things we can to flatten this curve and doing what we can do to play our bit in that. We’ve done a great job so far and all Australians should be credited,” he stated.
Warner rejected the thought of resuming sport with out spectators. “No doubt at all, you want crowds no matter where you go and where you play. I love playing in England, it’s awesome. You’ve always got someone they always try and rev up, and fortunately for the team it’s pretty much just me, and that takes a lot of the heat off the other guys,” he stated.
“We’re there to put bums on seats and hopefully we can entertain the crowd by playing a good brand of cricket.”
