England star Eoin Morgan excited by easing of lockdown restrictions ahead of new cricket season

England captain Eoin Morgan is optimistic that the timing of lockdown restrictions being lifted coinciding with the English cricket season can have a huge benefit on the sport.

Outdoor team sports will now be permitted as of Monday, 29 March, as the government’s roadmap to guide the country back to normality after the Covid-19 pandemic continues to unfold.

As part of that, children are encouraged to exercise for least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, while adults have been challenged to meet 150 minutes a week by Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty.

And Morgan is excited by the potential for many to get active again.

“I know how lucky I’ve been as a sportsperson to play cricket for a living, and to have been able to continue to do so during the ongoing pandemic while so many others have been unable to,” said World Cup-winning captain Morgan.


“The reason I started playing cricket as a child was because I loved it, but it also helped me keep fit and active, spend time with my friends, make new ones and have fun.

“I know that so many people, and especially children, have missed out on those vitally important things because of the pandemic so I’m delighted to endorse the £returntoplay campaign.
