BIRMINGHAM: Eoin Morgan, England’s 2019 World Cup-winning captain, is not averse to playing behind closed doors if it’s a pre-requisite for the T20 World Cup cricket to be held on schedule from October 18 in Australia. The cloud of uncertainty over the marquee ICC event is very much alive with all cricket fixtures, not to speak of the sporting world, has come to a standstill since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

‘‘We have to get used to it…whatever is possible to resume cricket with the safety of the players in mind should be one. We are used to often playing without spectators in County cricket which do not have huge following,’’ Morgan said at a media round table session conducted in Zoom to announce the launch of the fourth Abu Dhabi T10 League later this year.
