Australia's limited overs tour of England 'highly unlikely' - Warner

David Warner feels Australia’s limited-overs tour of England is ‘highly unlikely’ because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Australia are scheduled to play three ODIs and as many T20Is against England in July.

However, last week, the ECB announced to delay the start of the English season until July 1 as players might require some practice to return to the field after a long gap.

"At the moment it's highly unlikely we're going to go over there given what's happened in England," Warner told cricket.com.au.

He mentioned British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who had been diagnosed with COVID-19, which showed the extent of the problem because of the virus.

"He's back up on his feet now and that's fantastic news, but there's a lot more to this than just sport being played," Warner added.

Australia have already called off their Test tour of Bangladesh and their series against Zimbabwe is also under doubt.

Australia are set to host the T20 World Cup in October this year, as the governing body ICC is exploring all options before giving a green signal.

Cricket Australia is keen on playing India in the Test series after the World Cup as it would lose out on big cash if it doesn’t go ahead.
