Warner to miss The Hundred
Reportedly David Warner pulled himself out of ‘The Hundred’ league organized by England Cricket Board. His manager James Erksin said to a website namely ‘WAtoday’ said that the reason was not the pandemic. The report stated, “His decision to withdraw from the competition was unrelated to the COVID-19 outbreak, his manager James Erskine said as he confirmed the move on Friday.”
On the other hand, Warner explained, “I was excited to participate in The Hundred’s inaugural season with Southern Brave, though with the latest updates to the Cricket Australia schedule in the middle part of 2020, and due to the exceptionally busy cricketing program over the last 12 months, I have decided to put my family first and spend this time of the year with them.”
The number of increasing cases in the UK also forced England Cricket Board to postpone all their cricket schedule to May 28.
Warner to play IPL
Erskin had earlier mentioned that the Aussie superstar would be available for the Indian Premier League. He said to The Age, “If the IPL is on David Warner’s planning on going. If things change dramatically, which can happen in the space of an hour, the answer is you change your mind. It’s no different to everybody else.”
But now the future of the league is uncertain. The number of positive cases in India is increasing daily. All major events have been postponed or delayed. The 13th edition of the league was also deferred to April 15. The Board will further asses the situation in the mid-April and take a call on the league.
The various reports suggest that the league can travel abroad and postponed to the July-September period but everything depends on the pandemic now.
