The Coronavirus pandemic has put the entire world on a standstill, and due to which many cricketing events have been either postponed or cancelled. The big question, however, is that what will be the future once the normalcy in cricket resumes? Well, India’s Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane has the solution.
The Mumbaikar on Wednesday said that cricketers would require at least a month of training before the recommencement of matches. Rahane also opined that the fascinating sport could only begin after experts discover a vaccine for the deadly COVID-19.
“We would be needing three to four weeks of proper practice before playing any kind of competitive game (domestic or international). I am missing my batting. But obviously, cricket should only start when we get a vaccine to fight the virus,” said Rahane during an online press conference as quoted by IT.
Rahane also gave his views regarding the future of cricket post coronavirus outbreak. He said that in future, players would be cautious of celebrations and group hugs which they usually do after the fall of wickets. Rahane opined that handshakes would be replaced by ‘Namaste’.
