Joe root during the Cricket Show on Sky Sports hoped that cricket would soon be going live again with some guidelines designed by various authorities across the world.

The English team was supposed to play matches against West Indies in the next month and against Pakistan later in the summer. But the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) was forced to push out things until July due to the ongoing global crisis.

Showing his confidence the Test skipper of England said that some cricket can soon be played under the supervision of authorities and government.

“I’m very optimistic, hopefully that can be the case and it would be a real shame if it wasn’t,” he told the Cricket show on Sky Sports.

“I think a number of people are desperate to see live sport back on telly and the guys are all very much missing playing and would love to get back out there.”

Root, in the Show, praised the team doctor (Gurjit Bhogal) and said he has been with us recently and has done a fantastic job.

“He did a great job on the ground in Sri Lanka with all the players, checking in on everyone. And (ECB chief medical officer) Nick Peirce has also done a fantastic job overseeing everything and presenting ideas on how things might look to the group.

Bio-secure bubble might be a way forwad

Joe further stressed on the safety of everyone involved in the game and said, we need to make sure everyone involved is absolutely safe. He also suggested that putting the players into a bio-secure bubble might be the only way to get games on this summer.

Moreover, he added that things wouldn’t be that easy for everyone involved in the game, but maintained that ongoing discussions to bring normalcy within the field would be fruitful.

“Things could drastically change within that space of time and we could be in a different position to we are now but we’ve got to find safe ways of getting out of the bubble”
