Fate of T20 World Cup to be decided this month
The sports world has stopped due to coronavirus. The big occasion like Olympics has been suspended. The cricket world is stagnant too. All the bilateral series are being canceled one by one. Domestic crickets are being suspended like international cricket.
In such a rare situation, the commencement of upcoming Twenty20 World Cup is also in doubt. The global governing body of cricket, ICC may decide the fate of this cricket tournament this month.
This year is the 7th edition of the T20 World Cup in Australia. However, Cricket Australia has been stunned by the deadly coronavirus. Coronavirus infection is increasing rapidly in Australia. In the meantime, the local government has suspended all internal activities of the country and even stopped any contact with foreign countries.
Depending on the coronavirus situation of different countries of the world, the affected country is unlikely to be able to cope with the disaster completely. The possibility of coronavirus outbreaks during the World Cup cannot be overstated. The ICC is worried about the World Cup from now.
India’s influential media outlet Indian Express has said that ICC officials want to make a decision on the World Cup. The ICC and cricket boards will meet in the meeting on March 29 through a video conference. That meeting could be the final in what is the fate of the World Cup in the year of the outbreak of pandemic coronavirus. The ICC has called the meeting to discuss the future of cricket in the coronavirus situation.
Cricket Australia, the host of the World Cup, however, expressed optimism about organizing the World Cup at the right time. However, it has been almost a week since the agency provided the responsible source statement. The situation is getting worse. The World Cup and the short format of gentleman’s game cricket, like the global economy and public health, are also covered in a cloud of uncertainty.
