The cancellation of the fifth Test between England and India will have significant financial implications and impact the reputation of the prestigious Old Trafford venue, said Lancashire Cricket Club CEO Daniel Gidney on Friday.
“I feel for all our staffs, suppliers, stakeholders, partners, sponsors and guests. But above all, I feel for the ticket holders, who have spent their hard-earned money amid the difficulties of the pandemic over the last few months and who have been desperate to watch a fantastic game of cricket. Unfortunately, they can’t do that. On behalf of the Lancashire Cricket Club, I am truly sorry that those fans have been left disappointed,” he said.
Gidney admitted that the situation was not in their control and promised a full refund to the ticket holders.
