Explosive Australian opener David Warner has termed as “bizarre” the experience of playing behind closed doors, which it said was like playing a warm-up game.

Australia played against New Zealand in an ODI without spectators on March 13, which till date stands as the last international cricket match before the coronavirus pandemic suspended cricketing action across the globe.
“It was really bizarre, we are so used to saying yes or no when we want to run but we were not required to do that.

It was like playing a warm-up match. I do not know for how long you can sustain that, clapping from the crowd gives you motivation. It is bizarre, our Rugby league is starting now and they will be playing without any crowd,” Warner said during an Instagram live session with Indian opener Rohit Sharma.

“It is weird watching that as well, I do not know what it will be like if we play behind closed doors. However, the government is taking all these precautions for the right reasons,” the left-handed batsman added.

David Warner was to lead the Sunsrisers Hyderabad in this year’s Vivo IPl 2020, that has been postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown.
