England all-rounder Chris Woakes stated that whereas no wage cuts have been put in place for the gamers but, it’s one thing that he expects will happen in the near future.
Cricket in England has come to a standstill since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in the United Kingdom the place almost 3000 have died of the an infection.
“At the minute we haven’t been asked to take a pay cut but that doesn’t mean that it won’t happen in the near future. As players, we are united as one and we know that we are going to have to help the game get through this tough period,” Woakes instructed BBC Sport.
“I think it’s hard to speculate exactly what’s going to happen. Our governing body, the PCA (Professional Cricketers’ Association), does a fantastic job of looking after us the players and they are trying to help the ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) through this as well,” stated Woakes.
“Great to see the ECB are going to be able to help the Counties. Those conversations are still going on between the PCA and ECB about players’ wages and contracts and there is every chance that (a reduction in players’ wages) may happen.”
The ECB had earlier introduced that no skilled cricket might be performed earlier than May 28 and are understanding a calendar for the season upon resumption in June.
