Australia bowler Kane Richardson has backed the International Cricket Council’s move to hold off on deciding the fate of the T20 World Cup.
The tournament, hosted by Australia, is due to kick off in October, and the ICC said it was exploring “a number of contingency plans” due to the coronavirus pandemic but continues to prepare as if it will go ahead as normal.
ICC Men's World Cup 2023 has been postponed and is rescheduled to be held in India Oct-Nov 2023 with the final on 26 November. Speaking on it, ICC Chief Executive, Manu Sawhney said, "It is extremely important and is right for the sport. It enables our various members to be able to play their domestic and bilateral series which were disrupted due to COVID-19. It also provides time for players to train and get ready for the big stage. Most importantly, it basically helps us retain the integrity of the qualification process."
The International Cricket Council (ICC) on July 20 announced the postponement of this year's Men's T20 World Cup in Australia due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Speaking on the matter, former Chairman of IPL and Congress leader Rajeev Shukla said, "ICC has taken an appropriate decision by postponing the 2020 T20 World Cup. We all are waiting for this decision and I think this is the right and correct decision taken by ICC. In current situation it's very difficult to host this kind of tournament." The T20 World Cup was slated to be played in Australia from October 18 to November 15 this year.
Cricket Australia (CA) chairman Earl Eddings on June 16 said that staging the ICC T20 World Cup in Australia is 'unrealistic' due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. The T20 World Cup 2020 is slated to be played in Australia from October 18 to November 15.
