Australia should tour England for cricket uplifting: Langer
|| Desk Report ||
Australia head coach Justin Langer has said that Australia should follow West Indies and tour England for the uplifting of the game of cricket amid the concern of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
“My personal view is we have to go for so many reasons,” Justin Langer said.
“I think we have to go to England. There’re lots of challenges of course but we have to find solutions to make sure that can happen if possible,” Langer told News Corp Australia.
Cricket Australia (CA), which has laid off 15 percent of its staff during the pandemic, is also desperate to host a money-spinning Test series against India later this year.
“I think we have to go to England. There’re lots of challenges of course but we have to find solutions to make sure that can happen if possible. That’s my view,” Langer said.
“I think for the health of world cricket,” he said further.
“As much as we’d like India to come over here, I think we need to reciprocate that with England if we can,” he added.
Langer believed releasing Australia’s big names to join the IPL -- whose revised dates are yet to be announced -- was also essential as a goodwill gesture, to make sure India go ahead with their Test tour.
“I think we have to. Talking frankly,” Langer said.
“I hear a different story about the IPL’s plans every few days. It varies. So until there’s some clarity and we can work out how it affects the domestic season, how it affects our players, how it works with quarantine... there's a lot of considerations here,” he signed off.
