Kane Richardson backs ICC’s call to defer decision on T20 World Cup

Australian fast bowler Kane Richardson has backed the ICC for deferring a decision on the T20 World Cup amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The mega event is scheduled to be held in Australia between October and December this year. But in wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, ICC is yet to take a call whether the T20 World Cup will be postponed or not. The governing body decided to defer a decision on the tournament and the 2021 Women’s ODI World Cup till next month.

Richardson, who is a regular for Australia in the T20 format, feels ICC has done the right thing by biding more time in deciding the fate of the World Cup.

“It’s always nice to know what’s going to happen in the near future but taking as much time as we can to make a decision about this is important.

“I think it’s the right move, I think Australia and New Zealand have been really good in terms of flattening the curve, so I think there’s some positivity there in terms of some cricket being on this summer with some kind of normality around it.

“The best decision is to take your time with this and make sure we’ve made the right decision.”

Kane Richardson feels teams could be under-prepared for T20 World Cup

Talking further on the matter, Kane Richardson explained that teams could be under-prepared for the T20 World Cup if the tournament got a nod at short notice.

“As we’ve heard said so many times, it’s unprecedented, but if it means we’re underprepared, then so be it … but I think we’ll be fine.”

Richardson insisted that getting to play some domestic cricket before the showpiece event would be a bonus for the Australian players.
