Srinagar, April 23: Cricket Australia (CA) and International Cricket Council (ICC) are trying their best and exploring all options to see if the T20 World Cup could be held later this year amid Coronavirus outbreak.
The World Cup is scheduled to take place in Australia in October this year, however, with coronavirus pandemic having disrupted the things, it’s unclear whether the event would go ahead or not.
The Cricket Australia head, Kevin Roberts, though showed optimism about holding the mega tournament in the country.
“Cricket Australia is working closely with the ICC, the Local Organising Committee and the Australian government so we have a comprehensive understanding of exactly what it will take to be able to play the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 in October in Australia as planned.” He said.
“We are also jointly exploring all other options in relation to staging the event and will take the right decisions at the right time so we can host a wonderful celebration of the sport and keep everyone involved safe and well,” Roberts added in an ICC statement.
