The novel virus outbreak has brought each and every cricketing series to a tragic halt. Moreover, they have been postponed by the cricket associations for an indefinite period. Fans are eagerly waiting for the cricket action to mark its return. Even the players are also missing to brace the field.
In a recent interaction, Marnus Labuschagne, the new run-machine of Australia cricket team opened up saying that every player should be well prepared for playing ‘heaps and heaps of cricket’ once the situation comes under control.
The sporting industry is dealt with a major blow following the adverse effects of the pandemic. It has raised a big question mark on human life on the planet. The life-threatening virus has taken more than 2 lakh lives across the globe.
And, there is no vaccination available to cure people from the same. This is the reason why sports associations have postponed each and every tournament. Also, there is no update when sports like cricket will return back to its normal state.

In a recent interview, Labuschagne said that there are going to be many tours once the situation comes under control. He added that in a very short frame of time, players will get an opportunity to play a lot of cricket. The board and associations will try their best to make up for the time they lost due to the global pandemic.
The 25-year-old recited the fact that it is going to be a very different experience for every cricketer. So, everyone should be prepared for back to back cricket tours and series which will resume on the other side of this outbreak.
“There is going to be a lot of tours that will need to be made up. There’s going to be a whole heap of cricket in a very short time frame. We’ll be making up for missed time, that schedule is just going to be packed. It’s going to be a bit different to what we’re used to. We’re going to have to be ready coming out of this break to play heaps and heaps of cricket,” Labuschagne said as quoted by India Today.
