ECB statement on cancellation of crowd pilots
Reacting to the Government’s announcement that this weekend’s pilots for spectators to attend two Bob Willis Trophy matches will not go ahead, an ECB spokesperson said:
“We understand this is disappointing for supporters who have waited a long time to see their clubs in action and were looking forward to attending pilot events at the Kia Oval and Edgbaston this weekend.
“However, we understand the reasons the Government has made this decision, and remain ready to work with them to ensure supporters can safely return to stadiums when Government advice allows.
“We are pleased the Bob Willis Trophy will still begin this weekend behind closed doors, and fans will be able to watch their teams in action through the online streams being provided.”
