England must cope with limited T20 preparation ahead of World Cup: Morgan
England players would have to cope with limited chances of preparing for the Twenty20 World Cup scheduled for later this year in Australia due to the COVID-19 pandemic pattern and limitations Eoin Morgan said.
the England and Wales Cricket Board last month extended the suspension of professional gaming in the country until July 1 due to the novel coronavirus outbreak, which has infected more than 3.52 million people worldwide, causing more than 250,000 deaths.
Cricket authorities said late last month they were still planning for the World Cup in October, although Cricket Australia has conceded the entire international schedule is up in the air due to the virus.
Morgan said there are doubts about Australia's limited-overs tour of England in July, but believes his team's three one-day internationals against Ireland in September could be converted into T20s to help them prepare for the World Cup.
Durante el último mes, todo el mundo ha luchado por tener una idea de lo que es posible y de lo que podría o no suceder, dijo Morgan a the periodistas a través de Zoom.
Es posible que tengamos que hacerlo. Si se realizaran pruebas, habría formas y medios de tener juegos de práctica significativos en the alrededores de esos juegos de Irlanda en un entorno similar.
"We could have proper opposition and maybe use the England Lions there too to make it as highly competitive as possible."
Morgan said reducing playing time in the shortest format before the World Cup was not ideal.
If he T20 World Cup continues in the slot that has been assigned at the moment, we will certainly have played a limited amount of cricket before that, he added.
Dadas las circunstancias, tendremos que ver cuánto cricket jugamos y las oportunidades que se dan en las vueltas de the muchachos. Tendrán que aprovecharlas al máximo.
