What Is The Cricketer’s Quarantine Cup?
Like most sporting events across the world, England and Wales Cricket has been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. England’s tour of Sri Lanka was cancelled and the start of this year’s County Championship has been postponed whilst the Government’s policy of social distancing remains in effect.
With plenty of sides already feeling the heat of not playing, and millions of sporting fans across the world crying out for some cricketing action to follow, The Cricketer’s Quarantine Cup has been set up to plug the gaps in the calendar.
Eleven counties have nominated a first class professional to represent them in the PS4 game Cricket19. Games will be restricted to five overs per side, with the tournament organised in a round-robin format featuring two groups.
When Is The Cricketer’s Quarantine Cup?
The action kicks off on Sunday 12th April, in what would have been the first day of the County Championship. From 12th April to 12th May, there will be a game every evening at 7pm BST during the week and two afternoon games at 2pm and 5pm during the weekends, making for 25 group stage games in total.
Two semi-finals will be played on 7th and 9th May at 7pm before the Cricketer’s Quarantine Cup final takes place on 12th May 2020 at 4pm.
