ECB is delighted to confirm the return of cricket in England on 29 March.
Following the Government’s updated guidance for outdoor organised sports around the easing of social restrictions in England on 29 March, we are delighted to confirm the return of recreational cricket in England from that date. We know that our communities, players and volunteers will have missed the social, physical and health benefits of participating in our great game and we believe we have an important role to play in supporting the nations recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Importantly, we also know that we have a collective responsibility to ensure the safety of our communities by ensuring compliance with the latest Government guidance.
For England, we have produced an updated roadmap and accompanying documents (below) to provide you with the headline information on what activities are permissible from 29 March onwards.
