Former India skipper and batting great Rahul Dravid questioned the idea of playing cricket in bio-secure grounds. He says the idea seems impractical to be implemented on ground and hence cricket community should not be in hurry to play match under COVID-19 threat.

Rahul Dravid’s remarks came in a time when England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is planning out to host West Indies and Pakistan next month onwards in bio-secure environment.

It will impossible for everyone to do it

Speaking at a webinar organised by a non-profit organisation Yuva, the batting great said the idea ECB is flaunting is a bit unrealistic. ECB is keen to organise the series because they have had no other cricket.

He also questioned the implementation of the idea across the world. He says looking at the cricketing schedule; it is not going to possible for everyone to implement the bio-secure idea.

“Even if they are potentially able to create a bubble and manage it in that way, I think it will be impossible for everyone to do it with the kind of calendar that we have, with the travelling that you do on tours and the number of people involved,” PTI quoted Dravid as saying.

Professional players will adjust with empty stadiums

The legendary player further added that even though the experience of playing in empty stadium won’t be the same as before, professional players will adjust the situation.

“At a professional level, players will adjust and not let it affect their performances much. A professional, once he or she gets on to the field, has a lot of pride in oneself.”

Explaining about the experience which is going to be changed post COVID-19. Rahul Dravid said, players love to engage with fans and it gives them personal satisfaction to perform in front of large crowd.

“Players love to perform in front of a crowd, engage with their fans and that adds incredible complexity to a sport. I think that’s what a player will definitely miss. There is a personal self-satisfaction when you perform in front of a large crowd,” added Rahul Dravid.
