Cricket Scotland mentioned that it’s willing to host their scheduled matches towards New Zealand and Australia behind closed doors. Both groups are scheduled to go to the affiliate nation for a quick series in June and the matches are but to be postponed.
New Zealand had been to go to the Netherlands for an ODI series however that series was postponed this week following recommendation from the Dutch authorities.
“We are planning our way through and waiting to see what happens with advice. That’s all we can do at this stage. New Zealand aren’t going to Holland, and we’re just waiting to be guided by what their board says before we make any final decision,” mentioned Cricket Scotland CEO Gus Mackay in accordance to ESPNCricinfo.
“We have a temporary set-up at The Grange. If we got the go-ahead to play internationals behind closed doors, it’s something we’d consider and something we would be able to do. We do make money staging internationals, but if we had to play an international game behind closed doors it would definitely be feasible — the cost of temporary stands would be taken out of the equation.”
Cricket, like all different sports activities, screeched to a halt in March. Shortly after coronavirus was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation, a slew of main worldwide series had been postponed as was the 2020 season of the Indian Premier League.
