Justin Langer Australian Cricket coach, said that restoring cricket behind closed doors without any spectators when it is safe to do so will have “great value” for the public deprived of action by the coronavirus shutdown.
Like almost the whole sporting schedule around the world, cricket has been stooped by the pandemic, with no return date set in stone, One of the options being mooted is to have the sport resume after restrictions have been lifted, but in empty stadiums.
“When you started off playing cricket, when you were under age, there’s no crowds there,” he said, further added “You played it because you loved playing the game, you loved playing with your mates and you loved playing the game.
For the love of the game, and for still being able to entertain people through TV sets or radio, then there’s value in playing behind closed doors.
Yes it’s different, but we’ll never, ever, ever take for granted how lucky we are ever again.”
