Cricket Australia (CA) list of contracted players will be delayed by at least one month due to the fast-spreading Corona Virus (Kovid-19) epidemic. According to the Sydney Morning Herald report, Cricket Australia wanted to announce the list of contracted players in April instead of May this year.
According to the report, "But now the plan has been postponed till the end of April as the economic uncertainty has arisen from this epidemic." According to this, the Australian Cricketers' Association also agreed to the move. The circumstances arising out of Kovid-19 have also clouded Australia's upcoming tours of Bangladesh in June and England in July. The T20 World Cup is also scheduled to be held in Australia in October, while India have to tour Australia for four Tests, three ODIs and three T20 matches.
It may be noted that due to corona virus, more than 31 thousand people lost their lives worldwide and the number of infected people is more than 6.68 lakh. In India, the virus has spread to about 1000 people while 25 people have died.
