Coronavirus has destroyed dreams of sporting fans to live action of major tournaments this year including Olympics, Wimbledon and many more. This year’s twenty20 world cup in Australia could also be postponed in near future and latest development from ICC found that organization would take decision in August.
As per latest report published by Time of India, a reliable source from International Cricket Council has said that it would not possible to take decision in a hurry. We’ll wait for things to get better in the world and then can make call on the 2020 world cup.
“Right now, things look bleak, and people’s health is the first priority. However, what if the situation improves in a few months’ time?” source told TOI.
“What if the ICC announces that the T20 World Cup is postponed in May itself, and things improve a couple of months down the line, and cricket’s governing body realizes that it took a hasty decision. The ICC will take time to decide on the fate of this event, till as late as August. Don’t expect any announcement before that.”
Australia is scheduled to host ICC t20 world cup 2020 championship from 18 October to 15 November. But country has announced lockdown of six months that lasts to 30th September. So it would be difficult to make a call if the nation would host the event as per it’s original schedule.
