Lowering the guard at this stage is not advisable: BCCI

There has been no clarity on India’s tour of Sri Lanka because of the effect of COVID-19. Indian team was scheduled to tour the Emerald Island in the month of June for a short tour consisting of three T20I and as many ODIs.  


“We have had a very constructive discussion with all the cricket boards, including the SLC,” revealed Arun Dhumal, Treasurer, BCCI, in an exclusive chat on Sunday.   


“The fact of the matter is that just like BCCI, other Boards also have public health and the well-being of the cricketers and the staff members as their top priority. We are in a crucial phase of COVID-19 and lowering the guard at this stage is not advisable. All efforts must be made to defeat coronavirus that has brought the world to a standstill”.  


“As the BCCI, we have already communicated that we will fulfill our obligations be it home or away when the situation improves,” he further added.   


Closed doors


Incidentally, the BCCI sees no problems if the tour takes place and the matches are played without spectators.   
“As per the government guidance, the two ODIs against South Africa in Lucknow and Kolkata - before being eventually postponed - were to take place without any public gathering,” he added. 

 
Mickey Arthur, the Sri Lanka coach, when approached, said, “We would love to play India even if it is behind closed doors, but the Chairman, CEO and Board are in a better position to make the correct decisions”.
