Australian limited overs cricket captain Aaron Finch has said that he is ready as if ICC twenty20 world cup to be postponed even though three months from its original schedule of starting from 18th October.
In his recent interview to SEN radio, Finch said that if tournament would be organized without crowds, it would have been great for the start of sport after coronavirus pandemic.
“I think we might have to get our heads around a T20 World Cup that might be postponed for a month, two months, three months, whatever it has to be,” Finch told.
“But as long as we can get live sport up and running. Whether that’s with crowds or not, I don’t think that makes any difference to the players. We played one ODI against New Zealand with no crowd (and it) was really strange for first four or five overs, but then you got into your work,” he said.
Australia and New Zealand played test match recently with no crowd in the stadium and according to Finch, it didn’t make big difference for players with empty stadium.
“I think we might have to get a little bit creative with how we do that (as part of a new-look schedule). Whether that’s setting up and playing two Test matches in one hub or something like that.”
ICC t20 world cup is scheduled to play this year between 18 October and 15 November but due to COVID-19, it would be difficult for the event to go as planned. However International Cricket Council to take decision regarding the same at the end of July.
