England’s cricketers have returned from Sri Lanka and rightly so. If they’d stayed in Sri Lanka there’s no guarantee that they’d be able to get home at the conclusion of the tour. They may have spouses, dependents, children and elderly family who need their support. They can’t possibly have been expected to focus on cricket even if young healthy families are perceived to be at less risk. I myself have a child who is high risk and many people seem to be making misguided assumptions about who are and who aren’t vulnerable. England’s cricketers have a nice life but already spend enough time in hotels. To have been locked up in one with their families in England and no travel authorised just couldn’t have been allowed to happen.
As for The Hundred, the ECB will be worried!
Fingers crossed that cricket like society in general can recover soon.
