“Cricket ball is a natural vector of disease”: Boris Johnson

London [UK], June 24 (ANI): British Prime Minister Boris Johnson described the cricket ball as a “natural vector of disease” and ruled out the return of recreational cricket to the country.

Johnson was responding to a question from Conservative MP Greg Clark in the House of Commons, and it was then that Johnson said it was too early to lift the current restrictions to allow the return of recreational cricket.

“The cricket problem, as everyone understands, is that the ball is a natural vector of disease, potentially anyway. We have often encountered it with our scientific friends,” said Johnson on ESPNCricinfo.

“At the moment we are still working on ways to make cricket safer for COVIDs, but we cannot change the guidelines yet,” he added.

Johnson announced several relaxations on Tuesday, but the return of recreational cricket was not one of them.

However, this statement by Johnson will have no impact on the series of tests between England and the West Indies, which is expected to start from July 8.

However, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has stated that it plans to resume recreational cricket in the country around July 4.

The board also stated that cricket is a low risk sport as it is a contactless sport.

“We believe that cricket is a contactless sport, with very low risk of exposure, and that it can be played with as much security as many other currently authorized activities,” the ECB said in a statement.

“We are very keen to work with the government to see the return of recreational cricket on or about July 4, as it continues to lift other restrictions more broadly in society,” he added.

All international cricket has also been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, it should resume from July 8, as England and the West Indies lock the horns in the series of three tests. (ANI)
