New Zealand Cricket CEO David White discussed the possibilities for the bilateral series with his Aussie counterpart after governments of both the countries planned to open up a corridor to allow quarantine free travel.

“I’ve talked to Kevin Roberts about that. A Tasman bubble would be terrific if it did eventuate,”

White told Sydney Morning Herald.

David White, CEO of New Zealand cricket feels that the discussion with Kevin Roberts would certainly present some opportunities for the return of cricket but both the boards have to e open minded and flexible on the conference room.

“We haven’t talked specifics really. What we have talked about is conceptually the possibility of playing each other and that’s where we are at the moment,”

said New Zealand CEO.

The Cricketing world has been affected heavily

The Coronavirus outbreak has halted the entire cricket fraternity with no cricketing activities happening around.

Australia certainly would have to end the winter season without any cricket since the 13th edition of IPL has been postponed indefinitely. The Test tour of Bangladesh has also already been abandoned and a limited-over tour of England in July was called off due to the COVID-19 concern.

The T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to begin on October of this year, is also drowning in an ocean of uncertainty .

New Zealand’s home international summer is also uncertain with Pakistan and West Indies scheduled to tour for Tests and Sri Lanka in the shorter form.
