The statement said, “The reason for the Kovid-19 epidemic will be the cut in the salary of the players from the date of October 1, given the ECB’s considerable reduction in revenue. England had recently hosted teams from West Indies, Pakistan, Ireland and Australia whose matches were played in the empty stadium.
Team director Ashley Giles said, “We have to admit that our players, led by captain Joe Root and Eoin Morgan, have shown a lot of responsibility and maturity in this challenging time.”
