Adaptations for all outdoor cricket activity, applicable to players,spectators, volunteers, clubs, coaches & officials in Step 4 of the ECB Return to Cricket Roadmap
ECB has maintained a constant dialogue with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS) throughout this process and we have prepared a plan to support clubs and individuals as they prepare for the return of recreational cricket, including details of adjustments which should be made to respect hygiene and social distancing requirements.
That plan – available here– covers a number of areas of the game, including:
- Pre-match adaptations regarding transport and symptom checking.
- In-game adaptations applying to social distancing measures, hygiene, match officials and the use of equipment.
- Post-game adaptations, including the potential use of club facilities.
- Advice for coaches specific to individual sessions and junior cricket.
The ECB have also produced a useful FAQ’s document in response to the many questions that have been raised in relation to the guidance. The FAQ’s can be found here
