The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is planning to reduce the workforce by 20 per cent due to the loss of 100 million pounds (about Rs 9.5 billion) due to the epidemic. ECB Chief Executive Officer Tom Harrison said after a comprehensive review of the budget that the amount could increase by 200 million pounds (about Rs 19 billion) if the outbreak continues. Harrison proposed a 20 percent reduction in the board’s workforce budget, which meant the ECB would end 62 roles. “These proposals include a 20 percent reduction in our workforce budget, which is equivalent to removing 62 roles from our structure,” Harrison said in a statement. Despite the current challenges, England became the first country to resume international cricket during this epidemic. She has held the series in a bio-safe environment with the West Indies, Ireland, Pakistan and now Australia.
Cricket Australia removed 40
Cricket Australia evacuated 40 people in June in view of the financial crisis caused by the Kovid-19 epidemic. It also included Graeme Hick, a member of Justin Langer. Not only this, it also cut the salary of more than 200 staff.
