The long international schedule of England in all the formats is going later this year is going to be a big headache with the pandemic restrictions still taking place. England will be playing a five-match home test series against England and it will be followed by tours to Pakistan, Bangladesh ahead of the T20 Worldcup and then it will be followed by the Ashes.

England has so far used the rotation policy to keep the players rested and without stress, but the upcoming tours are going to be very important and all formats players will need certainly need their families around as the quarantine is not so easy. Australia hasn’t been allowing flights to their nation and with England players arriving in for Ashes might be without their families.

Jos Buttler Hopes For A Better Solution

The England wicket-keeper batsman who has been a regular feature in all formats will have a very tight schedule this year and he expressed his displeasure overplaying without families. He stated that it is going to be a very tough challenge and he referred to players in the team who have young families who will certainly face the heat. He hoped that the situation gets better and a better solution comes up.

“I don’t know the answer. Covid is an ever-changing situation and Australia have some quite strict policies. That (playing without families) would be a huge challenge, especially when you are accustomed to being able to take your family.

“A lot of the guys have young families, so I’m sure they’d find that tough. Hopefully, a positive solution can be found,” Jos Buttler reacts to the situation.

Disappointing Campaign For England Test Team

The England test team is coming off a 0-1 defeat against the New Zealand team in a two-match home test series. They had to put up some better performances in India to stay in contention for the World Test Championship finals but couldn’t manage with the rotation policy and the performances of the top-order batsmen have been under survey already.
