Roadmap for return of recreational cricket

The ECB has identified five steps for the proposed phased return of the recreational game in England this summer. There are five steps set out as part of the return.

England is currently in step 3 – which allows for small group training sessions of up to six people, whilst respecting social distancing.

The Welsh government is due to review current restrictions on 18 June, after which time we will provide further guidance.

As cricket is a non-contact sport that involves individual disciplines within a team environment, forms of the game can be played while respecting social distancing. We will continue to be led by UK government advice and will only move into step 4 when the guidance allows and when it is medically safe to do so.

In addition to the 5 step infographic, there is also a detailed list of FAQs available for download , which answers questions such as:

  • Do you think we’ll play club cricket again this year?
  • If I can sit in a pub garden with my mates from July 4, why can’t I play cricket?
  • Why does it look like other sports are ahead of us in terms of the return to sport plans?
