Matthew Hayden not in favor of cricket’s resumption
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 4.5 million people have been infected by the deadly virus while approximately 306,000 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 cricket pundits expect things going from bad to worse unless cricket activities get restored.
However, former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden has expressed concerns over the resumption of cricket in the prevailing circumstances. The elegant lefty of his times is of the opinion that having lives at stake should not encourage the idea of getting back to cricket activities.
Moreover, the veteran of 103 Tests, 161 ODIs and 9 T20Is added that practicing social distancing while playing cricket would be a hard task. Not only that, he highlighted the people involved in broadcasting who could catch the virus. Therefore, Hayden is not in favor of going forward by holding cricket matches.
