The coronavirus crisis has dealt a heavy blow to cricket all around the globe. With no return of normal sporting ties in sight, the scenario looks gloomier than ever as players, broadcasters and other stakeholders are restricted by the limited number of economic opportunities available.
Amidst this ongoing pandemic, Cricket Scotland has announced that no competitions or league matches will take place in the country this year. All cricket activity has been halted for at least a month while domestic cricket has been put on a hold till August 1.
"We very much understand that those involved in the game will be disappointed that there will be no league cricket this year and the decision has been made with a heavy heart," said Cricket Scotland chief executive Gus Mackay.
