ECB to delay professional cricket season

England Cricket Board (ECB) has decided that no professional cricket will be played in England till May 28th. This decision means that the cricket season in England will be postponed for at least 7-weeks. ECB was set to schedule the Vitality Blast, the 3-match Test series against the West Indies, and series against Indian women cricket team.

Concerning the COVID-19 outbreak, ECB, in cooperation with the government, has clarified that the board cannot take risk of hosting any sort of cricket at the moment as the wellbeing of the players and staff is the priority.

However, the board might meet again in the future to review the situation about how things unfold in the UK in the upcoming couple of months. Remember, UK has been hit badly by the outbreak of Coronavirus and under such conditions it will be impossible to host any sort of cricket event.
