Players have now started playing in the stadium filled with spectators. Many assumed that it would take some time to get accustomed to playing without an audience.

England wicket-keeper batsman Joss Butler said that it would be quite ‘strange’ to play without an audience when cricket returns after dealing with the Covid-19 epidemic. He said, however, that it would have the advantage that the game would reach its ‘pure form’ where no one would see the competition of the players.

England’s Ben Stokes, one of the world’s best all-rounders, said that even if cricket matches are played in empty stadiums, the competitive spirit will not be reduced.

The England and Wales Cricket Board has indicated that the upcoming series against the West Indies can be played without an audience. When Stokes was asked for his opinion, he said, “I don’t think it would be a problem to play without an audience.

” We represent our country. We have to win for the country. In such a situation, it does not matter much whether the audience remains in the ground or not.

Stokes, who played 63 Tests, 95 ODIs and 20 T20Is for England, said the best option in the current situation is to play cricket for television, catering to the needs of healthcare.

All the Cricket lovers are waiting for the game to be start soon so let’s hope that everything comes back to normal track in sometimes.
