Veteran Pakistani off-spinner, and 2010 winner Of T-20 world cup, believed that cricket after corona pandemic without an audience is like tea without sugar.
Saeed Ajmal stated, without audience and spectators players will hard to find motivation during the matches and even the situation is quite boredom to the players with no fans in the stadiums.
In this situation like these with no fans and strict rules and regulations for corona pandemic, only restricted players are allowed to play the game over others.
Saeed Ajmal said, “It would be boring for players and, in a way, similar to deaf cricket because there will be no crowd to watch the match.”
Former off-spinner Saeed Ajmal believes that stadiums for the upcoming series and matches are not kept emptied in England. The off-spinner suggested the idea, the cricket organisers should prefer 1000 fans over 10,000 in stands to get the feel of live matches.
Saeed Ajmal further added, “I would request the authorities to allow a limited number of fans in the stadium. For example, 1,000 people in a venue with a capacity of 10,000.”
While the current 20 players of Pakistan team for the upcoming test and T-20 series which will start from August already reached England through the charted air flights.
When cricket resume England team are favourites – Saeed Ajmal
While Pakistan team reached the Manchester with the team, they are moved to two weeks of Isolation period in Worcester before any kind of warm-up sessions. On 13th July, the team moved to Derbyshire.
Talking about the upcoming series, Saeed Ajmal believed England team are in the good shape to seal the series and humiliate Pakistan. The recent form of Pakistan team in test cricket is not good and with no experienced player in the team, they are the least favourite to win series in England.
Saeed Ajmal further added, “I think England are clear favourites because Pakistan’s track record in Test cricket, in the recent past, is not very good. I would be surprised if Pakistan even wins one match. Our team is inexperienced and has a lot of young players in it.”
