So does it mean the two batsmen can’t meet at the end of the over?” Shakib instructed the Dhaka-based Prothom Alo. “They will stand at their ends? Won’t there be any crowd in the stadium? Will the wicketkeeper stand afar? What would happen to close-in fielders? These things require discussions.”
Shakib nonetheless stated that the ICC are unlikely to let cricket resume with out assessing the scenario correctly. “I don’t think they [ICC] will take a chance before they are very sure. Whatever it is, life comes first. I am sure they will think of safety first,” he stated.
Shakib, who’s at present serving a one-year ban, stated that he’s spending his time counting days to his return, too.
“I’m counting days in two methods. One, when will corona be over, and the opposite, when will my suspension finish. I’m going by means of a troublesome time. Though there is not any cricket happening anyplace, I do know that if it begins tomorrow, I will not be capable to play cricket.
“When you find yourself restricted about one thing, whether or not others speak about it or not, you understand your self about what you’re going by means of,” he stated.
