Mumbai: England fast bowler James Anderson said playing international cricket behind closed doors would be similar to county cricket.
Anderson was having an Instagram live session with England teammate Stuart Broad and then Anderson decided to talk about playing cricket behind closed doors.
“It is quite easy to play in front of a big crowd because of the intensity, you have to be at the top in your game. If there are no people, then you have to try your energy and intensity from somewhere. Honestly, it would be similar to county cricket, ”Anderson told Broad during the season.
“It’s exciting that we’re really talking about the possibility of playing cricket this summer. There are concerns but there’s no way we will play without those concerns. I think as long as everything is in place with safety concerns then I will be pretty comfortable playing,” he added.
Meanwhile, the ECB has already stated that no cricket of any kind will be played in Britain until 1 July. However, the board is trying to play a Test series against the West Indies behind closed doors in the month of July.
Currently, the coronavirus epidemic has brought all cricketing operations to a standstill.
England was slated to play a two-match Test series against Sri Lanka in March this year, but it was postponed due to Covid-19.
