Josh Hazelwood is a ‘bit’ surprised about Cricket Australia’s financial health. Australia’s Star bowler Josh Hazelwood is surprised about the financial crisis of Cricket Australia.
Cricket Australia (CA) is struggling in the time of pandemic COVID-19. Cricket Australia said players will work together with the governing body to overcome this situation.
As you know, novel coronavirus halts all the cricket activity across the globe at the moment and there is no definite time to restart the cricket action.
CA has laid 80% off its staff due to coronavirus for the rest of the financial year (ends on June 30). But as per reports CA will not run out of the money by August.
Josh Hazelwood is a ‘bit’ surprised about Cricket Australia’s financial health:
“I was a bit surprised there but there has to be some impact, no doubt.” Hazlewood was quoted as saying by the ‘Sydney Morning Herald’.
Josh Hazelwood said all the sports event is being closed by now and the players are ready to face the situation.
“We are no different from any other sport. It just depends how long it hangs around as to how much it is going to affect us, I guess. If it leads into next summer, it will be quite serious,” Hazlewood was quoted as saying by ‘Sydney Morning Herald’.
“We’re obviously partners in the game and we’ve always said that. We have ridden the highs and now its probably time to ride the lows, a little bit.” Hazelwood said.
CA and Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) had a bad dispute in 2017 but Hazelwood now thinks that relation gone improved since then between these two.
“I think the relationship is a lot better now, between the ACA and CA. It’s developed a long way in the last 18 months to two years, probably,” Hazelwood said.
“so that will go a long way towards having this episode (handled) a lot better than last time. It’s all positive from our end and I think, from both ends.” Hazelwood said.
At this time no cricket action is taking place around the world thus it leads many financial crises to some of the cricket boards.
