Australia and Pakistan offer hope that England can complete majority of schedule

Australia and Pakistan offer hope that England can complete majority of schedule”

"I'd be really surprised if we can't get the Indian tour away".

"We are inspired by and grateful to the whole cricket family from the grass roots of the game right up to our elite teams for their incredible team spirit, for not just thinking about their own survival but also about how they can support the wider community".

"But the simple fact is and it's a genuine answer we need to get cricket back on again and now is probably not the time to try and leverage anything".

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), which is estimated to lose as much as GBP 380 million if the entire season is wiped out due to the COVID-19 pandemic, hopes to resume cricket by rescheduling the series postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak, including the home series against Pakistan.

"We are not going to jeopardise their health". We're looking at bringing around 25 players - more than normal.

"There is a lot of cricket to be played between now and 2022", he said while speaking in Sky Sports' The Cricket Show. "We're probably about a week away from that".

Current guidelines mean any arrivals to the United Kingdom from overseas would require a 14-day quarantine period, but there is a chance that could also double as a training period if the venue can be signed off as "bio-secure".

"The ECB have said they are going to come back to us on that once they have gained clarity on what we can do during that time", Khan explained.

"But the best test of that is the West Indian and Pakistan tours of England before we're due to tour".

Although the selectors are curiously holding off from naming this pool of players until next week - as well as a separate white-ball group - the bowlers will start their work at seven grounds: Chester-le-Street, Edgbaston, Hove, Old Trafford, Taunton, the Oval and Trent Bridge.

"We are told there are going to be two venues (to stage matches)". Now reports have emerged the Australian cricket board chief executive Kevin Roberts is in discussion with his English counter-part Tom Harrison for a limited-overs series late in September. "We hope they go off without a hitch".

"I guess there's no such thing as certainty in today's world so I can't say 10 (out of 10), but I'm going to say nine out of 10", Roberts told a roundtable held by Australia's News Corp when asked about the prospects of India touring.
