In the current scenario, the battle between life and death has pushed all the other things to take a backseat. The mass outbreak of the novel COVID-19 has caught 213 countries. As a result, more than 2.6 million people have been infected by the deadly virus while approximately 185,000 people have departed from this world.
Like other activities, cricket has been stopped which has created financial hurdles for cricket boards. Many boards had to lay down staff and former Pakistan cricketer Ramiz Raja sees things going from bad to worse unless cricket activities get restored.
Reflecting on the prevailing situation, the 57-year old has backed the resumption of cricket even if it is behind closed doors. He is of the opinion that boards will have to come up with concrete plans as their functioning would be seriously dented if the virus keeps the world to a standstill position. It remains to be seen how the cricket boards respond to his advice.
