English cricketer Jos Buttler is optimistic about the resumption of cricket. He feels the players can start training soon. Jos Buttler believes most things will change if players return to train in the next couple of weeks.
Speaking with BCC sports, Buttler said, “I’m reading and hearing things that it could be imminent, in the next week or two. I think to start with that would be individual training in a socially distant manner. Maybe just you and a coach. As a batter, I could get someone to throw balls at me. We would stay apart and travel to the ground in our own cars. We’d go straight to the nets, then leave.”
Buttler also expressed his anxiousness regarding the situation and stated conditions will have to be absolutely safe for the players to return.
The 2019 World Cup winner said, “We can make decisions ourselves. If we’re not happy, not comfortable, there is no pressure to do something we don’t want to do. That will look different for everyone. Hopefully, they can put in a place a very safe environment that everyone would feel comfortable with. It’s an ever-evolving situation and the more information we get, the more decisions we can make.”
The outbreak of the Corona Virus has brought the world to a standstill. It has also halted all the sporting events as a safety measure for the people and avoid the mass gathering of crowds. The cricketing calendar has suffered because of the same.
If not for coronavirus pandemic, Jos Buttler would be busy representing Rajasthan Royals in IPL right now. However, the Board of Control for Cricket in India has postponed the 13th edition of the tournament indefinitely due to the same.
