The Australia coach says they would provide entertainment for cricket fans watching on TELEVISION or listening on the radio.
Australia coach Justin Langer thinks resuming cricket behind closed doors when it is safe to do so will have “great value” to the public.
Like almost the whole sporting schedule around the world, cricket has been stopped by the coronavirus pandemic, without any return date set in stone.
One of the options being mooted is to have the sports resume after restrictions have been lifted but in empty stadiums.
And it is an idea Australia coach Langer would support.
He told BBC Radio Five Live: “When you started playing cricket when you were underage, there are no crowds there.”
“You played it since you loved playing the game, you loved playing with your mates, and you loved playing the game.”
“For the love of the game, and for still having the ability to entertain people through Television Set or radio, then there’s value in (playing behind closed doors).”
“Yes, it’s different; however, we’ll never, ever, ever take for granted how lucky we are ever again.”
