Australia coach Justin Langer wants cricket on field despite COVID-19 fear
Worldwide sports events are now closed due to coronavirus. Cricket should start behind closed doors. But if all goes well, Australian coach Justin Langer wants to see the bat vs ball fight at twenty-two yards. Because cricket fans are deprived of watching their favorite game.
“When we start playing cricket, everybody is younger,” Langer said on BBC Radio.
“Then there is no crowd to watch the game. Everyone loves playing cricket. It’s also nice to play with teammates. And it’s fun to play. And even if the gallery is empty, it is possible to entertain cricket lovers through TV sets and radio. As a result, it has a different value. Yes, it’s different. But we are fortunate to be able to play, it will not be forgotten.”
Like all other sports, all cricket events are now closed. Domestic cricket tournaments are closed in all countries. International cricket has also lagged behind. As a result, cricketers are spending time indoors.
The Australian team had already played behind closed doors in the opening match of their most recent ODI series against New Zealand at the Sydney Cricket Ground on March 13. The final two matches in Sydney and Hobart were canceled as coronavirus issue was spread much back then.
