Morgan said Bio-secure bubbles a blueprint for others

MANCHESTER: Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the England’s successful completion of their summer schedule inside bio-secure ‘bubbles’ is a blueprint for other countries to stage matches amid the Covid-19 pandemic, limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan said.

Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and the England’s successful completion of their summer schedule inside bio-secure ‘bubbles’ is a blueprint for other countries to stage matches amid the Covid-19 pandemic, limited-overs skipper Eoin Morgan said.

In July with three Tests against the West Indies in bio-secure sites at Southampton and Manchester before matches across all three arrangements against Ireland, Pakistan and Australia, England returned to action following the Covid-19 stoppage

Morgan told reporters, “From where we were five months ago to have had a full set of international fixtures and to have cricket back on the TV is huge for the game.”

“I think we’ve pioneered and mapped out exactly how to get cricket back on. Given we’ve had no positive cases within the bubble I think it’s a very good example and one every team around the world will look at.

“Whether they can model it exactly like that might be a bit more challenging but I think the ECB has done an outstanding job.”

Morgan told the BBC that the health and wellbeing of everyone involved had been at the forefront of their thinking before a ball was bowled.

He added, “If there was another summer of a bio-secure bubble we would probably have to look at guys spending more time outside of it or families being allowed to come in.”
