No crowds, no problem for England scorer James Anderson
LONDON: James Anderson He has insisted that he is still excited to play for England this season, even if the matches are played behind closed doors.
England's cricketers will return to limited one-on-one training next week, with bowlers like Anderson in the lead, amid reassurance that health protocols will make their sessions less risky than going to a supermarket.
England and Wales Cricket The board hopes they can start a delayed coronavirus season by rescheduling a series of three tests in the West Indies home for July that will take place in June.
But officials have admitted that the only way international matches can be organized immediately after the pandemic is by banning viewers from what will be biosecure terrain.
Anderson, however, has lost none of his enthusiasm when it comes to adding to his England record of 584 test wickets.
It is exciting in a way, we are talking about the possibility of playing cricket this summer, Anderson said Friday in an Instagram Live with his old colleague of new ball. Stuart broad .
I think as long as everything is in place with security issues, I will be quite comfortable playing.
We have been part of the creation of England for a long time. We have some great people working on all the possibilities and results this summer and moving forward.
As for playing games without spectators, Anderson calculated that his experience of participating in some county games with little attendance for Lancashire would help him.
It's pretty easy to play in front of a huge crowd because of the intensity, you have to be on top of your game, explained Anderson, a 151-year veteran of 151 tests.
If there are no people there, you have to try to find your own energy and intensity somewhere.
To be honest, it will be quite similar to county cricket!
The ECB's plan for bowlers to return first is to try to give a seven-week advance to a rescheduled first test in July.
And with Britain in a confined state, Broad said they would need that time to get close to the match's physical fitness.
It will take us eight or nine bowling sessions, I think we feel like our bodies are ready to go, Broad said.
Anderson added: Yes, it is difficult. As much as you can play in your garden or with a tennis ball or whatever, nothing reproduces practice or (being) in the middle, so we have to give ourselves time to re-enter it.
And I think the other thing is not to get frustrated again because it's been a long time since we played.
If a few balls go where you don't want them, you just have to wait while you go back inside.
