When will England’s domestic cricket season be played on the field in 2020? Nobody can answer that. Because the coronavirus epidemic has spread throughout Europe. It is also not certain when the overall situation will be normal.

Lyon was supposed to play in the first half of the county championship campaign. But Hampshire director of cricket Giles White said:

“Given the current situation, the two sides have reached a decision to cancel the deal on mutual understanding. As a result, Nathan is no longer joining us this season.”

“These are clearly uncertain and challenging times, and it’s unmistakable the issues cricket as of now faces will add to the manner by which counties can work and plan for this season.

“I might want to express gratitude toward Nathan and his agents for their total comprehension and understanding and we would like to invite him to the club next season.”

England’s domestic cricket season is unlikely to begin before May 28 for the COVID-19 epidemic.
