Compromise is a must to bring cricket back into field: Finch
|| Desk Report ||
Australia T20 captain Aaron Finch said the cricket boards across the world should come to a compromise to bring cricket back into the field after the Covid-19 pandemic worldwide.
Citing the measures of ECB, Finch also said each body should have to come forward to their own mechanism like ECB to overcome the present tricky situation.
Cricketers would be staying in a bio-secure environment when they will be in England and would be able to train during the 14-day quarantine period.
“It will get to a point, not just for IPL but for all crickets. There’ll be a compromise from a lot of different stakeholders – organisations, countries, players, the ICC – to get cricket back and countries thriving again,” Aaron Finch said.
“I think the ICC is meeting next week to start discussing the FTP (Future Tour’s Program) again. The next couple of weeks we’ll have more idea what that looks like, what compromises will be made for different tournaments and countries,” Finch was quoted as saying by ‘Sydney Morning Herald’.
Finch said things won’t always be in favour of Australia but compromises will have to be made for the benefit of all the concerned.
“Everyone is working together to get the best result for everyone. Some situations where it’s not ideal for Australia we have to compromise and give. It will be one big effort, I think,” the 33-year-old skipper said.
“With India coming out here this summer, Kevin Roberts (CA CEO Roberts) said it was a nine out of 10 (chance). I think there will be give and take in a lot of different things like that,” he also said.
Australia is likely to resume cricket with a limited-over series in England after the Bangladesh Test tour was postponed due to the global health crisis. England has been one of the most affected countries with over 36,000 COVID-19 deaths.
However, Finch said he has no concerns about playing in the UK as they would be staying in a bio-secure environment and would be able to train during the 14-day quarantine period.
“I’d be super excited to get any cricket back – if it’s international cricket all the better,” Finch said.
“If it’s done really well with the quarantine bubble and regular testing, I don’t see it being an issue. I’d be keen to get back playing as soon as possible,” he added.
