Chaminda Vaas, Sri Lanka’s finest left-arm pacer, hopes that the International Cricket Council (ICC) provides enough time for all players around the world to get ready for intense cricket once the COVID-19 crisis is over.
Responding to Gulf News on Zoom during the Desert Cubs Cricket Academy’s interactive session to a question on whether pacers around the world would be as strong and effective after the long lay-off from cricket, Vaas said: “The ICC should give leeway for all cricketers to practice and get ready for cricket after the Covid-19 crisis subsides. After being away from cricket for more than a month and a half without intense practice, it can be tough for everyone. Everyone should be provided enough time to train before the start of all cricket activities. I understand countries like Australia have started indoor practice sessions.”
