England’s men’s cricket team have accepted a 15% wage cut, a not insignificant amount when all things are considered. Good on the team for doing so!
English cricket is often described as elitist and recently there have been even more articles about class and accessibility. It’s great to see that the national team aren’t completely out of touch. They had already made charitable contributions since COVID-19 reared it’s ugly head. As many as 62 ECB personnel have lost their job this year. Hopefully this move might prevent more from doing so.
Fingers crossed that cricket will rise again. There’ll be a boom period and more jobs can be created, on and off the pitch.
