ECB has ‘multiple offers’ to host upcoming home games


Manchester: The Chief Executive of the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), Tom Harrison, revealed that they have ‘multiple offers’ from different countries to host their upcoming home series.

According to the CEO, Australia and New Zealand have offered ECB to reschedule their home series there. “We’ve had offers as far away as Australia and New Zealand. Those offers are on the table,” said Harrison.

Harrison highlighted that the cricket board is considering an option to conduct matches behind closed doors. “We don’t know when this situation will be clear. We are somewhere considering an option of matches behind the closed doors but we will plan it later,” he said.

Meanwhile, the CEO said that the future of ‘The Hundred’, newly introduced 100-ball format, will be decided next week.

It must be noted here that all professional cricket in England has been postponed until July 1 on the directives of the UK’s government.
