“Our view is that this decision is both necessary and a precaution that had to be taken in the interest of cricket and the sustainability of the game.  We are monitoring the situation with the virus and are in constant consultation with medical and virology experts.  We will apply our minds to the input of experts and act in a way that reflects our duty of caring for our players,” commented Faul.

“We are currently doing a full risk assessment on the influence of the virus on our operations, including the current domestic season,” he said.
