Following the latest changes in the restrictions that include; travelling aboard becoming acceptable and Pubs and Bars being allowed to open and serve people again, it is becoming more and more frustrating that Recreational Cricket is still not being allowed to be played. However Football, Tennis and other sports have all been given the green light to restart.
