England’s series against West Indies which was scheduled in early June was already postponed due to lockdown. The Test series against Pakistan was deferred until July 1st. Now the England team captain Joe Root hopes cricket matches can be played if the rules are relaxed by the government. He said, “I’m very optimistic, hopefully, that can be the case and it would be a real shame if it wasn’t.” He told that fans and players both are missing cricket very much and are waiting for the game to be resumed soon. “I think a number of people are desperate to see live sport back on telly (television) and the guys are all very much missing playing and would love to get back out there.”

Like others, he is also eagerly waiting for the world to get back to its normal status so that everyone can return to their normal lifestyle. He hoped that discussions on the comeback of international cricket would make good progress and soon everyone would be able to see cricket live. “I’m sure the discussions will progress and we’ll get more information and get closer and closer to cricket being back on and international cricket being played.”

Safety should be the priority

Meanwhile, England had to give a miss to their tour to Sri Lanka because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Speaking about the same Root acknowledged the fact that public safety should be given the first priority. “Safety is paramount and we need to make sure everyone involved is absolutely safe,” he pointed out.

Root understands that this kind of situation can arise at any time and England should be able to act flexibly. In case of such a drastic situation scheduled upcoming matches can be subject to change.
