The Coronavirus pandemic has marked a halt in the way of all sports activities. Cricket, being one of the major outdoor sports, has been badly influenced under the lockdown. The cricket board of every country soon will be pressurized to organize the games behind closed doors as the situation doesn’t seem to be getting healthy so far and the freaks can’t survive without cricket.
Before a complete lockdown, a few matches were already played without the spectators such as Pakistan Super League (PSL) matches in the end. Organizing the games behind closed doors also causes disruptions financially. Also, the spirit and joy of cricket get lost when there are no passionate supporters.
Matches without spectators will be tough: Virat Kohli
The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, says that he is enthusiastically waiting to go on the field to play but games will be meaningless without the passionate fans. He also thinks that it will be tough to recreate with a sense of tension.
“I honestly don’t know how everyone is going to take that because we all are used to playing in front of so many passionate fans. I know it will be played at a very good intensity but that feeling of the crowd connecting with the players and the tension of the game is very difficult emotions to recreate,” he said.
“Things will still go on, but I doubt that one will feel that magic happening inside because of the atmosphere that was created. We will play sports how it is supposed to be played, but those magical moments will be difficult to come by,” he pointed out.
