The England’s Test captain Joe Root is feeling relieved after the Test series between England and Sri Lanka is postponed. ECB requested SLC to call off the Test series amidst the Corona Virus fear. The English players flew back home keeping in mind the imminent suspension of global flights.
Root feels that the players are mentally at ease now as they can take care of their families back home, “You could see looking at the players and their minds elsewhere thinking about people back home. Now that we can go and look after families and be with loved ones that has put a lot of guys at ease”, Joe Root said.
Many English players have also pulled out their Pakistan Super League stint and flew back home. With the suspension of the Indian Premier League as well, the English players will sit back home until the fear of the Corona Virus subsides.
