Cricket Australia Statement
April 16, 2020
The impacts on the sports industry of the coronavirus pandemic are bigger than any one sport.
Cricket Australia - like all sporting bodies - is planning for a return to training/play although no one is certain when this will be possible at this stage, and many scenarios are being considered.
We are conscious of the impact this will have on Australian Cricket and are working hard to manage that proactively.
We have made the decision during this period of isolation, where activity has naturally been reduced, to stand down our people on reduced pay (with the exception of a skeleton staff) effective 27 April for the remainder of the financial year.
We will continue to seek advice from medical experts and relevant government agencies to ensure the health and safety of our people, volunteers and communities, and to return to business as soon as possible.
