T20 World Cup: Cricket Australia chairman Earl Eddings has reacted to the T20 World Cup. Earl Eddings has said that the T20 World Cup this year probably seems unrealistic. The T20 World Cup is proposed to be held in Australia from 18 October to 15 November this year. In the last meeting, the ICC had talked about exploring possibilities for the T20 World Cup.
Eddings also attended the ICC meeting. He said that the tournament has not been completely postponed and plans are on to bring 16 teams to Australia, but the Coronavirus epidemic is still going on in those countries. I think this is unrealistic. We have given many solutions to the ICC and are working on it further.
ICC has not canceled T20 World Cup
In the midst of an epidemic such as the Coronavirus, the ICC probably has some hope. In the last meeting, the ICC did not take any decision on the T20 World Cup.
However, the ICC options are kept open and all possible options have been talked about. The ICC has said that preparations for the T20 World Cup will continue while exploring the possibilities. Although earlier speculations were being made that the ICC would postpone it completely this did not happen.
Cricket Australia’s chairman has twice requested the ICC to postpone the T20 World Cup. He had said that the tournament would be held in Australia next year and after that, a second T20 tournament could be held in India by 2022.
However, the ICC has decided to organize this tournament as soon as possible. Like the T20 tournament, BCCI is also looking for an IPL event. BCCI is looking for an appropriate time window. The IPL has also not been completely postponed this year.
According to the news, in the event of not having the T20 World Cup, the path of IPL could be cleared. However, all events are time-dependent.
