Langer sees ‘silver lining’ to coronavirus shutdown

AFP, Sydney

Australia coach Justin Langer is encouraging his players to see a “silver lining” from the coronavirus shutdown of sport and enjoy the "nirvana" of unexpected time at home with family.

All cricket in Australia has been cancelled, with the team’s three-match Twenty20 series against New Zealand this month a casualty after just one game.

The domestic Sheffield Shield was also called off and there are serious doubts as to whether next month's postponed Indian Premier League, where Australia's top stars ordinarily play, will go ahead.

Australia’s proposed Test tour to Bangladesh in June and a subsequent one-day campaign in England are also at risk.

Langer admitted some of his players were exhausted after featuring in all three formats almost continuously since last year's World Cup, and said their time off should be savoured.

“From a personal point of view, I'm trying to encourage our players to find some silver lining out of it,” he told reporters from his home in Perth late Thursday.

“What I mean by that is we're at the back end of our season, and if we can use it as effectively as possible to give ourselves a physical and mental break, it's very important.
