Cricket is going to start in the middle of Coronavirus. From 8 July, hosts England and West Indies will face each other at the Edge Bowl Stadium. On Wednesday, when the Windies and England play in the ground, it will also be historic moments in 143 years of Test cricket. This will be the first time in the history of world cricket that cricket will be played in an empty stadium without an audience.
The ICC has also changed the rules of cricket in view of the rising outbreak of the Corona epidemic. Now spitting on the ball will be completely stopped. Players will not be able to make high fives on the field and will not be able to give their glasses and weights to the umpire as well. From time to time, all players will also have to sanitize their hands.
For the last four months, cricket activities have come to a complete standstill. On 13 March, the last international match was played between Australia and New Zealand. Meanwhile, South Africa’s tour of India was also canceled midway.
The T20 World Cup, to be held in October-November due to Corona epidemic, is also stuck in the balance. It is believed that the ICC may announce the cancellation soon. In such a situation, BCCI can organize IPL 2020 in this time period.
