Cricket has been completely stalled for some time due to Coronavirus. However, no one knows when the players will play the match. But a good news is coming for cricketers and fans. The T20 World Cup to be held this year is almost certain to be postponed till 2022.
But the good news is that with the postponement of the World Cup, the possibility of organizing the IPL in October has increased with it. A teleconference of the International Cricket Council is expected to be held on Thursday. A member of the ICC board told PTI that the decision to postpone the T20 World Cup could be taken during the board meeting to be held on Thursday. It is unlikely that the T20 World Cup can progress in this situation.
Want broadcasters in India
According to the news, broadcasters want the 2021 T20 World Cup to be held in India. With no live matches this year, the game will have the most impact on its revenue and the ICC’s revenue comes from broadcasting rights. In such a situation, no governing body can ignore it. If that happens, India will host the 2021 T20 World Cup, while Cricket Australia can host 2022 in October-November.
According to the report, there has been a discussion on the strategy of organizing the IPL between 25 September and 1 November. A franchise official has also said that further strategy is under discussion. Keeping this in mind, further policies are being made. The news is that foreign players are also involved in the strategy. It is visible to note here that somewhere, most franchisees want to play IPL along with foreign players. Chennai Superkings had openly given its opinion on this. An official of the Chennai franchise had said that if foreign players do not enter the league, the IPL will remain as the second Vijay Hazare Trophy. However in the end everything stops coming on the corona virus cases. If the Corona virus issues do not stop, then there will be no option but to cancel the league.
