Risk of Corona virus: English players won't join hands in Sri Lanka tour
England captain Joe Root has said that his players will not join hands with anyone in Sri Lanka to protect against the Coronavirus.
Asked about the Coronavirus from Joe Root before departing for Sri Lanka for the two-Test series, the England captain said, "We are aware of at least the usefulness of contact because of the whole squad's illness in South Africa." And our medical team has given us very useful tips to prevent the spread of germs.
Remember that before the Test series against South Africa, the whole England team was suffering from stomach and nasal diseases.
Joe Root said that we have decided that we will not shake hands with each other and are constantly washing hands, not yet worried about the visit but we are in touch with the authorities on the current situation and hope that the tour plan Will reach the end according to.
The Sri Lankan team will play the first two practice matches, followed by the start of a two-Test series, which is part of the World Test Championship.
Remember that England won 3-0 in Sri Lanka two years ago but Root thinks the Sri Lankan team will be a tough opponent this time.
"Given the part of the year we are here, the conditions will be different, even the matches played two years ago were very interesting and the margin of success in all matches was less than 60 runs," he said.
