ICC t20 cricket world cup 2020
The 2020 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is scheduled to be the seventh ICC Men’s T20 World Cup tournament with matches to be held in Australia from 18 October to 15 November 2020 The final will be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. In April 2020, the International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed that despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the tournament was still planned to go ahead as scheduled. However, the following month a senior ICC official said that it would be “too big a risk” to host the tournament in 2020, The ICC also stated that reports of postponing the tournament were inaccurate, with multiple contingency plans being looked at with a decision on tournament deferred until the ICC’s meeting on 10 June 2020.
We have been hopeful all along that it could be staged in October-November but you would have to say there’s a very high risk about the prospect of that happening,” Cricket Australia chief executive Kevin Roberts said on Friday.
Roberts is more confident about the lucrative four-Test series against India going ahead, starting at the Gabba in Brisbane on Dec 3. “But while that would deliver much-needed broadcast revenue, it would also come at a cost of millions for extra biosecurity measures that we need to put in place to deliver the season.”
CA released a draft schedule for the southern summer that involves back-to-back T20 International series against the West Indies and India in October, a Test match against Afghanistan at Perth from Nov 21, and the Tests against India in Brisbane, Adelaide (Dec 11-15), Melbourne (Dec 26-30) and Sydney (Jan 3-7).
The Australians regained top spot from India in the last International Cricket Council rankings released before the sport was shuttered globally in the pandemic.
India is scheduled to stay for a three-game One-day International series on Jan 12, 15, and 17 before the Australians take on New Zealand in three one-day games and a T20 from Jan 26 to Feb 2.
The schedule depends on state borders being open and the provision for visiting foreign teams to fulfill whatever isolation or quarantine requirements are in place at the time.
“It may be that circumstances dictate that when the time comes maybe we can only use one or two venues, we don’t know any of that yet,” Roberts said. “There are endless scenarios and possibilities [but] we’re very optimistic that we will be able to stage the Indian tour and the other inbound tours for the season.
