Srinagar, April 21: Cricket is unlikely to resume at least for one year due to coronavirus pandemic, believes former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar.
Akhtar said he is unsure when will the coronavirus leave the world, hence cricketers getting back to the ground seems a distant dream.
“If you ask me honestly, I do not know for how long the coronavirus outbreak will last, until and unless it is not known that how many people are infected, one cannot go ahead with any kind of cricket anywhere,” Akhtar said in a video posted on his YouTube Channel.
“I do not see cricket being played for at least a year due to the coronavirus. I see the virus troubling us for one year, these are troublesome times, I just hope we come out of this stronger,” he added.
Like everything else, coronavirus has shaked the sports world. All the events have been canceled and the resumption looks unlikely as of now.
