Ashes: England could field under-strength squad for Ashes as ECB rules out postponement

Ashes: Following the talks between the team and officials of the English and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), the possibility of England fielding an under-strength squad in the upcoming Ashes has grown significantly.

As per ESPNcricinfo, some members of the playing squad and some members of the team management were underwhelmed by the ECB’s refusal to even countenance a partial or even complete postponement of the tour. As a result, they are considering their options.

Ashes: One of those options is understood to be the entire team – including coaching and support staff – taking a collective decision to boycott the tour. Earlier also, there have been reports that a number of England players could withdraw from the tour of Australia if they are not allowed to bring their families along. It is unlikely that there will be any loosening of the 14-day quarantine period by November.
