Corona seems to have affected the game as well as the whole field. Corona wreaked havoc on this season of Big Bash League (BBL). Many matches had to be postponed due to Corona. However, the final is to be played between Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers on Friday. Earlier, the Sydney Sixers team is in bad shape. 6 players on the team are corona infected. So there, team captain Moises Henriques, Steve Ko Keefe, and Jordan Silk are injured. In such a situation, it is difficult to complete the playing-11 for the final itself.
How bad has Corona affected the Sydney Sixers? This can be gauged from the fact that even in the semi-finals, the team did not have 11 fit players and Covid-19 to take them on the free ground. In such a situation, wicketkeeping had to be done by the assistant coach. In view of this, the team’s all-rounder Dan Christian has given a unique offer to the cricket players to be a part of his team before the final.
Dan Christian, who plays for Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2021, has appealed to fellow cricketers to be a part of his team. Later they will drink free beer and they will also get a big cup (filled with trophy).
“Speak to anyone in Melbourne who wants to play a cricket match tomorrow night. My team is struggling to make a playing-11 of 11 corona-free and fit players in the park warm-up will start at Marvel Stadium from 6.30 pm. This will then be followed by free beer and possibly a larger cup. Message if you are looking forward to it and yes, don’t want a Test cricketer.”Christian tweeted
AB de Villiers gave a funny reply to this tweet by Dan Christian. He tweeted, “I am curious if you can guarantee me my 4 overs?“. At the same time, Jofra Archer wrote, “Do I have to pay for this?“
