Serious point though - cricket is one of the most socially-distanced team-sports you can get, apart from the bowling-end umpire.If they could start the season normally and rely instead on a wicket-cam/Hawk-Eye, etc and the third umpire you could have all those bored furloughees gratefully engrossed in the longer formats for days at a time and re-invigorate interest in Test and County cricket at very little risk to the players. Missing a trick here, methinx.
Good point. Although the umpire can just wear a mask and visor.
I'd like to see them use some kinda sugar solution used on the ball for the first 50 overs and then maybe some type of wax to get it reversing.
