New Zealand Cricket confirms to Go Ahead with Upcoming Series!

New Zealand Cricket confirmed on Tuesday that Pakistan, Australia, Bangladesh & the West Indies will tour during the upcoming home series despite of the coronavirus pandemic.

New Zealand Cricket Chief Executive David White has said that the managed isolation arrangements for the visiting teams are still being worked upon with Officials in Wellington but the series would proceed.

“I was just on the phone to the West Indies, they’re confirmed, Pakistan is confirmed, Australia and Bangladesh, so (there will be) 37 days of international cricket,” he told reporters.

White also declined to release any schedules of the tours until details has been worked out. He further said that the arrangements were likely to follow the model of the bio-secure bubbles which was adopted in England for the recent West Indies tour in which the team’s accommodation & training facilities were located in the match venue which is a bio-secure environment to isolate the players & ensure their security.

“We’re working through that with the government agencies at the moment, a similar concept… the agencies have been really supportive, the government’s been fantastic,” he said.

All International Arrivals into New Zealand are currently required to spend at least 14 days in strictly supervised quarantine facility.

But New Zealanders domestically are enjoying a near-normal, pre-coronavirus lifestyle with no social distancing and spectators allowed at sports and cultural events. New Zealand has recorded only 22 coronavirus deaths in a population of five million, and this week marked 100 days since its last case of community transmission.
