The International Cricket Council (ICC) board will hold a video conference on May 28 in which the fate of the T20 World Cup scheduled for October-November in Australia could be decided.
Though on the agenda is ‘further deliberations on the T20 World Cup affected by COVID-19 with the running time out and none of the participating teams having resumed training yet, the tournament is facing major issues.Cricketers world has no any practice for cricketer from last 2 months.
The issue is expected to be discussed by the Anil Kumble-led ICC cricket committee that will meet before the board does. The cricket committee’s recommendations to the board will be crucial as it will also deliberate on ways to keep the battle between the bat and ball even on resumption with medical experts having advocated no use of saliva on the ball to extract movement.
ICC in its last meeting had shared with members multiple contingency plans for the World Cup, prepared by the local organising committee. With international travel still suspended, the board may have to look at one of those options soon.
The Indian cricket board (BCCI) is in favour of postponing the World Cup2020. “The players haven’t practiced well and logistically it looks difficult for so many countries to come together for battle. Besides, when all member boards are alredy facing problem, the priority should be to allow them to schedule their own series in the first available opportunity; it will help them get back on their feet and good for icc too- a BCCI official said.
