Preparations are on to postpone the postponement of the T20 Cricket World Cup to be played in Australia during October and November in the year 2020. According to the schedule, the T20 World Cup was to be played from 18 October 2020 to 15 November 2020. Although the formal announcement of postponement of T20 World Cup 2020 has not been made yet, it is expected that a formal announcement will be made in the coming week.
Cricket administrators ICC and Cricket Australia are seeking an answer to the question that if the 2020 Cricket World Cup is not held this year, when and where its next edition can be played.
Cricket Australia cannot organize T20 Cricket World Cup in February and March. During this time also T20 World is not organized in India because the IPL starts in India on those days. During this time England has to visit India.
In such a situation, India agrees to give Australia the hosting of the 2021 T20 Cricket World event, instead India can host the T20 World Cup in 2022. But this is not going to be easy for India. At the moment there is no reason why India would agree to switch the T20 World Cup.
T20 World Cup 2020
The third biggest thing is that Australia can organize T20 Cricket World Cup in 2022 because no ICC events are scheduled to be played that year. For the time being, the T20 World Cup has to be postponed this year. Its decision will be taken in the ICC teleconference between 26 to 28 May.
The biggest reason for the postponement of the 2020 T20 World Cup in Australia is the coronavirus epidemic. In view of the Kovid-19, Australia has banned flights of flights till 30 September. After this, players will have to quarantine 14 days before the start of the World Cup. Which is a big obstacle in the World Cup event.
Apart from this, if the World Cup takes place in Australia, then the matches will be played in an empty stadium, which makes no sense. Because Cricket Australia will not be able to earn more revenue than this. But if the next World Cup is held in Australia, then there is a chance of earning revenue. This is the reason that Australia agrees to postpone.
