HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh Funeral

13th April 2021

ECB have released a gamewide statement relating to the HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh Funeral on Saturday 17th April 2021.

Updated ECB Statement – 12.04.2021

In line with wider protocol and government guidance we are recommending that clubs pause play between 3-4pm on 17 April, to coincide with the funeral of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. 

In those instances where an extended tea interval or prolonged break in play may cause practical issues, especially in relation to the Government’s Covid-19 guidelines, we are happy for clubs and leagues to adapt accordingly and proceed with fixture plans and timings as needed.

We would ask that all clubs and teams join the rest of the nation in observing a one-minute silence at 3pm

We are also asking all recreational cricket clubs across England and Wales to pause play between 3pm and 4pm next Saturday in order to pay their respects alongside observing the one minute silence at 3pm
