The Cricket Commission of England and Wales (ECB) has already approved all summer games up to the 28th season. May has been cancelled and there is no guarantee that the matches will be played before the end of the summer. The county season should have started already and Lancashire has therefore terminated the contracts with three of its foreign players.

The New Zealand Victorian BJ Watling has been signed for the first nine games in the district. Australians Glenn Maxwell and James Faulkner should play for them at the T20 Blast. But now their contracts have been cancelled because of the uncertainty of the upcoming matches. Lancashire also called it a rift.

Paul Allotte, Lancashire cricket manager, thanked the three cricketers for their understanding of the situation in the county and said both parties had agreed to terminate the contract. I would like to thank BJ, Glenn, James and their representatives for their full understanding of the current situation and their full agreement to this decision, he said in a statement published on the official Lancashire website.

Paul Allotte also confirmed that the current situation is financially difficult for the district. The Old Trafford club therefore thought it wise to terminate the contract originally concluded with the players. However, he also pointed out that they could fire the trio in 2021 and explained that it was also an opportunity for the local players to show their talent in case of a shortened season this year.

From now on, no cricket action has any influence on the players’ payments. The international players in England have already agreed to pay their salaries and now the Lancashire players have agreed to a 20% pay cut in May because they are not playing. The salary cuts also apply to the team’s support staff, although the blockade caused by COVID-19 remains uncertain throughout the summer.
