Cricket After COVID-19


So far 2020 has been an unpleasant one for the cricket fraternity. With COVID-19 creating chaos globally, all the matches which were supposed to happen from March 2020 or so have been abandoned. The impact of COVID-19 was so worse that not even a single game was played for quite some time.

In July, when situations seemed to be under control West Indies and England have decided to play a three match test series in England. This was a bold move from both the cricketing nations considering the COVID-19 consequences. This series gave a sigh of relief for all the cricket fans around the globe as it was the first series which has been played in over a period of time and this time cricket didn’t look the same as it was earlier.

There were quite a lot of changes to make sure the game is safe and sound. ICC had to revise few rules which included no crowd in the stadiums, no shake hands between the individuals, no group celebrations, no saliva on the ball, proper sanitization of the dressing rooms, stumps and bails during the breaks, pre-match and post matches. Also cricketers are only allowed to be in the squad if they are tested COVID-19 negative.

We all know cricket is known for whooping crowd in the stadiums. It is so disheartening to see the games with no audience. With that being said, this would be a complete different experience for the players as well. These rules will be functioning until any further notices from ICC. Apparently, few countries have already decided to start playing cricket.

With IPL being played in the next month, fans and players are gearing up for what is going to be an absolute cricketing event. Let’s see for how long this goes and hope Cricket will be normal as early as possible.
