England may find it difficult to return the ashescurrently held by Australia due to lack of support from their families in Australia, says wicketkeeper-batsman Joss Butler.

The English cricket team traveled to Australia in November and played the first ash test at Gabba in Brisbane on December 8. However, they may not be able to be accompanied by their families due to the Covid-19 protocols in Australia.

“That [bringing back Ashes] it would be a huge challenge, especially when you’re used to being able to take your family, “Butler was quoted as saying by

“Many of the boys have young families, so I’m sure it will be difficult for them. We hope a positive solution can be found,” the 30-year-old added.

England liquidated the Ashes on January 18 in Perth. Prior to that, Joss Butler and Ben Stokes, among others, who also play limited cricket, will also represent England on tours in Pakistan, Bangladesh, and the T20 World Cup.

This will mean a long time in quarantine and almost five months away from their families. Cricket Australia has reportedly asked the Australian government to allow English cricket families to travel with them.
