The coronavirus has now become a threat to all over the world as it is spreading with a vast speed. Cricket authorities have already taken the decision to go closed-door games in order to overcome the risk of spreading the disease. On Friday, the first closed-door game has been played between Australia and New Zealand at Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney. Meanwhile, during the game, a hilarious incident took place when Lockie Ferguson turned into a spectator to get back the ball from the stands.
It all happened on the first ball of the 18th over when Arron Finch hit a ball from Ish Sodhi for a huge six in the stands. As there was nobody to give the ball back from the stands, Lockie Ferguson went to the stand to get back the ball.
The video of the incident is making rounds on the internet platform. The video has been uploaded by official twitter handle of Espn Cricinfo. They have uploaded the video with the caption, “Life’s tough without the fans.” Here we are also attaching the video of the same incident at the below of this article.
Would Be Weird To Play In An Empty Stadium: ARRON FINCH
Earlier ahead of New Zealand tour of Australia, Arron Finch quoted as saying to Espn Cricinfo that it would be weird to play in an empty stadium.
“It would be weird to play in an empty stadium, no doubt you get so accustomed to the atmosphere of the fans who ride the momentum really well especially when you’re playing at home and the Australian fans support us so well and if it comes to go that we’ll wait and see, I saw the NBA being suspended for the near future so yeah it’s interesting to see, it’s not ideal obviously a lot of people are affected which is unfortunate”
