Cricket's return to play - Updated roadmap for England and guidance for Wales

ECB is delighted to confirm the return of cricket in England on 29 March

Following the Government’s updated guidance for outdoor organised sports around the easing of social restrictions in England on 29 March, we are delighted to confirm the return of recreational cricket in England from that date. We know that our communities, players and volunteers will have missed the social, physical and health benefits of participating in our great game and we believe we have an important role to play in supporting the nations recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Importantly, we also know that we have a collective responsibility to ensure the safety of our communities by ensuring compliance with the latest Government guidance.

For England, we have produced an updated roadmap and accompanying documents (below) to provide you with the headline information on what activities are permissible from 29 March onwards.

For Wales, we will continue to work closely with Sport Wales and Cricket Wales to provide the accompanying guidance.

We will continue to update the relevant information as and when we receive more information on the latest position across both England and Wales.
