The cricketing activities all around the world have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak with the English Cricket Board suspending their tour to Sri Lanka and calling back their players from Asia and also stopping all cricket domestically and recreationally in the country as well. There are question marks on the upcoming English county championship, the T20 Blast and The Hundred as well.
Meanwhile, the England all-rounder Ravi Bopara had to find out a way to keep himself fit and fine while staying indoors in order to stay safe. Bopara shared a photo on his Twitter which showed a hole in a wall with the caption reading, “Turns out working from home isn’t the best idea for cricketers.”

Not only England, but cricket has been stopped all over the world with Pakistan stopping the Pakistan Super League, while India also deferred the upcoming season of Indian Premier League 2020 from March 29 to April 15, while suspending the domestic cricket as well. All the bilateral series have been cancelled or postponed and cricketers have been advised to stay indoors and stay safe from the spread of the coronavirus.
New Zealand and Australia closed their borders for incoming traffic and called back their cricketers from abroad assignments and put them under self-isolation as well as per WHO procedures. This pandemic has the threat of becoming a catastrophe unless and until the world comes together and puts a stop to the spread by practicing self-quarantine, social distancing, and proper hygiene practices.
