The Sydney Sixers Pacer Jackson Bird has said that there is a bit of anxiety in the camp and he feels that contracting COVID-19 is inevitable.

There’s a little bit of anxiety,” Bird said to 1170 SEN Breakfast on Friday. “In terms of the schedule but it’s probably more anxiety around COVID. (Everyone is thinking) when are you going to get it? It feels like just a matter of time before the whole squad gets it,” said Bird.

“I hope I’m wrong, but that’s just the feeling I’ve got at the moment. You’ve got to put it out of your mind which can be a little bit hard to do. It’s pretty weird times,” he added.
