This year’s T20 World Cup in Australia can be postponed till 2022. This may open the way for conducting IPL 2020. However, the World Cup is expected to be decided at the ICC board members’ meeting. This meeting is to be held on 28 June. IPL 2020 is currently indefinitely postponed. In the event of postponement of the ICC World Cup, the way for the IPL 2020 event could be cleared.
Speaking to PTI, a board member said “Three things can be expected from the ICC’s Competition Committee. The tournament is only after the first 14-day isolation. The spectators are allowed to come in. The second is in the empty stadium.” There are matches and the last option is to postpone the tournament till 2022. ”
- BCCI will also get revenue from IPL 2020 held
- Foreign players are also expected to benefit greatly from IPL 2020
Players benefit from IPL 2020
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly recently said that players’ fees will not have to be deducted due to the IPL 2020 event. This will also not cause revenue loss to the board and will not have to cut salary and other allowances. The ICC has to take a decision on the World Cup soon but BCCI is waiting for the IPL 2020.
The absence of T20 World Cup to be held in Australia will cause financial loss to both Cricket Australia and the ICC but it can be repaid further. T20 World is proposed to be held in India next year too. After this, the ICC may consider in the upcoming meeting to organize the T20 World Cup in 2022. One special thing is that this time the World Cup is postponed to 2022, then the World Cup will be seen for three consecutive years. It will include two T20 World Cups and one ODI World Cup.
The ICC has also suffered financial losses including the Cricket Board of all countries due to the Corona virus. Players have also suffered losses. All the players and other staff are under house arrest and the grounds are closed due to the lock down. Everyone wants the epidemic to end and the game starts.
