Cricket Matches May Prioritize Men Over Women

Clare Connor of ECB believes that more international cricket matches of men may resume compared to those of the women team. 

ECB’s managing director of women’s cricket Clare Connor believes that men’s matches may prevail upon the resumption of cricket in England. As the ECB suffered from a massive financial crisis due to COVID-19, Connor thinks that men’s international matches may be prioritised to help reduce the problem. 

Connor says, ‘If the international women's schedule can't be fulfilled in full but a large amount of the international men's programme can this summer, which is going to reduce that £380 million hole, we have to be realistic about that'.

'We've got these long-term ambitions for the game that extend beyond this summer and trying to protect as much investment as possible over the next five years, that is largely going to come down to how much international men's cricket can be staged’, she added. 

According to her, the fact that she’s being realistic doesn’t mean that their team wouldn’t fight hard to push with their international schedules against India and South Africa. She also says that they may only have a few venues and a certain number of days to cram all details of their matches. 

To date, neither of their two series has been cancelled amid COVID-19. The pending series of England’s women team are the ODI series against India and the T20I and ODI series against South Africa. To further understand ODIs and T20Is, check out Betwala.
