England players will be free to withdraw from tours if living and playing in bio-secure bubbles is impacting their mental health, says limited-overs captain Eoin Morgan.

England games were played at bio-secure venues this summer amid the coronavirus pandemic, with players spending several weeks living in on-site hotels.

Similar measures are in place at the Indian Premier League and are expected to be needed again for future tours.

“I think it is untenable,” Morgan said.

“I don’t think it’s possible. I actually think it’s probably one of the more challenging times for anybody involved in the cricket industry.”

England’s men played West Indies, Pakistan, Ireland and Australia this summer with all matches played at Emirates Old Trafford or the Ageas Bowl, where the players stayed in on-site hotels.
