Staging T20 World Cup “very difficult” insists Cricket Australia chairman

Cricket Australia chairman, Earl Eddings has said that it will be “very difficult” to stage the T20 World Cup, owing to the global coronavirus pandemic.

The mega-event is scheduled to be played in October-November in Australia, but the COVID-19 crisis is likely to affect the future of the tournament.

ICC is keeping a close watch on the situation and is expected to take a decision on the fate of the T20 World Cup next month.

Hosting the T20 World Cup in such crisis is “unrealistic”

Talking on the matter, Earl Eddings insisted that inviting teams to Australia in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis will be an impractical decision.

“Trying to get 16 countries into Australia, when most countries are still going through Covid spiking, is unrealistic, or will be very, very difficult.”

ICC is yet to hold a decisive meeting on the fate of the marquee event as the governing body feels further observation is required before taking a final decision.

CA has put forward different options to the ICC

Earl Eddings further asserted that the CA is working on finding a solution and has already forwarded some options to the ICC.

“The ICC are having meetings as we speak. It’s a bit of a moving feast at the moment. We’ve put forward a number of different options to the ICC that we’re working through.”

Notably, international cricket has come to a grinding halt for over two months after the coronavirus outbreak forced the authorities to suspend the game all around the globe.

However, international cricket is now ready to resume with England hosting the West Indies in a three-match Test series, starting on July 8th at the Ageas Bowl.

But it remains to be seen what decision the ICC takes in regard to the T20 World Cup, which is scheduled for later this year.
