It should be that controlled an environment.”However as per protocols issued by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), players will have an option.“All athletes and support staff should be engaged in a 1:1 check-in prior to resumption of organised step one training to ensure they have understood the sport specific risks and mitigations, training site protocols in place, are physically and mentally well enough to engage in return to training and have actively ‘opted in’ to engaging in step one return to training,” the document stated.“It will be for individual sports to agree with their athletes any conditions for their return. All athletes and staff should also be clear on their route to ‘opt out’ of the organised training environment under Step One conditions at any time without unreasonable steps being taken against them consequently.”Even the ECB Director agreed that they have to create an environment where West Indies and Pakistan both feel safe while travelling to the United Kingdom.“It can be quite scary but we are doing everything we possibly can to answer all of West Indies’ questions. We will be speaking to Pakistan as well and mitigate as much risk as we possibly can. We can’t mitigate all risk but as much as possible to get guys comfortable.”However Giles assured that a complete risk assessment would be done before taking the plunge.“We are also outside where we know the risks are far less. We will certainly carry out the right risk assessments at the venues. We will make sure all the staff are trained and that we have the right equipment, including PPE [personal protective equipment]. We will make sure everything is there for the guys to go about their business as safely as possible.“Would I be confident if I were a West Indies player? I would be nervous, certainly, but we are all nervous aren’t we? I’m not making light of this but there are risks every time you go outside the house. We need to mitigate as many of the risks as we possibly can.” Latest Sports News Sport News Viking Classic Birmingham 2021 Final: Ons Jabeur beats Daria Kasatkina to clinch title Previous articleCricket Business : Pakistan cricket team tour to Ireland postponedNext articleCricket : NZC announces central contracts, Kyle Jamieson rewarded for India show Kunal DhyaniSports Tech enthusiast, he reports on Sports Tech industry and writes on sports products.
