“All we are also tremendously blessed in Australia. I speak with a family, who are staying in England and there each and everybody knows somebody who has affected by this virus, most of the people know that very well that who passed away.
“And here in Australia, we are thinking about coming back of crowds. Here we feel safe. Undoubtedly all it is a step by step process and takes precautions, but according to me there are a lot of things to think about.”
Critics of Kevin Roberts, mostly the association of the players and dissatisfied state associations, considered him a pessimist and sledge his rejection to talk the game up.
Hockley said in a comparatively optimistic tone:
“It is extremely difficult.. it is regarding making sure that we provide the summer more safely & securely, and trying out best. We are concentrating on all these priorities.”
“Summer is coming very soon. We incurred it to the cricket players, fans, and the whole cricket community to be together. The primary thing I have to do is speed up the things, I have to do a lot of readings too.”
The charted accountant, Hockley is all set to uncover the financial difficulties of Cricket Australia, having been part of it and trying to resolve it.
