The England and Wales Cricket Board’s victorious completion of their summer season schedule inside bio-secure ‘bubbles’ is a blueprint for different nations to stage matches amid the Covid-19 pandemic, one-day worldwide (ODI) skipper Eoin Morgan stated.
England returned to motion following the Covid-19 stoppage in July with three assessments in opposition to the West Indies in bio-secure venues at Southampton and Manchester earlier than matches throughout all three codecs in opposition to Ireland, Pakistan and Australia.
“From where we were five months ago to have had a full set of international fixtures and to have cricket back on the TV is huge for the game,” Morgan advised reporters.
“I think we’ve pioneered and mapped out exactly how to get cricket back on. Given we’ve had no positive cases within the bubble I think it’s a very good example and one every team around the world will look at.
“Whether they can model it exactly like that might be a bit more challenging but I think the ECB has done an outstanding job.”
Morgan advised the BBC that the health and wellbeing of everybody concerned had been on the forefront of their considering earlier than a ball was bowled.
“If there was another summer of a bio-secure bubble we would probably have to look at guys spending more time outside of it or families being allowed to come in,” he added.
