Virat Kohli, the Indian skipper and one of the well-known cricketers, has uttered his views on cricket behind the closed doors and thinks that match will be boring and tough to recreate along with a sense of tension without the fans.
Undoubtedly, the fans bring joy to the cricket and add spirit to the game with their supports and chants in the ground. The matches without spectators will be like food without spice. Unfortunately, the Coronavirus pandemic, which doesn’t seem to work in the favor of ending the lockdown, has halted cricketing activities and it is not known yet when the cricket will resume again. The possible option that the board might take is resuming the cricket scenarios behind closed doors without the fans.
Virat Kohli: Matches will be tough without fans
Already, a few matches took place like this such as PSL‘s some matches were players without the spectators. Virat Kohli is eagerly waiting to return to the field but at the same time, he thinks it will be tough to continue the game without passionate fans.
“I honestly don’t know how everyone is going to take that because we all are used to playing in front of so many passionate fans. I know it will be played at a very good intensity but that feeling of the crowd connecting with the players and the tension of the game is very difficult emotions to recreate,” he said.
“Things will still go on, but I doubt that one will feel that magic happening inside because of the atmosphere that was created. We will play sports how it is supposed to be played, but those magical moments will be difficult to come by,” he pointed out.
