To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, whether the Government has assessed the health risks of (a) cricket and (b) other non-contact sports resuming in the summer at grassroots level.
The government is in regular contact with representatives of sports, including cricket, to discuss both the impact of Covid-19 on sports and to explore how and when grassroots sport can safely resume once lockdown restrictions start to ease. The government has asked individual sports to consider the steps that would need to be taken, and the conditions that would need to be met, for their activity to resume.
The government has been clear that any return to sport will need to be consistent with existing guidelines on public health and managed in a way that minimises risk.
