Cricket T20 World Cup in October 2020 Seems Impractical: BCCI Official

Cricket T20 World Cup in October 2020 Seems Impractical: BCCI Official

Owing to the coronavirus outbreak and the effect it has had on the world, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) feels that going forward with the World T20 tournament in October-November in Australia would be impractical.

Speaking to IANS, a BCCI official said: "To be honest, the T20 World Cup in October seems to be impractical and even thinking of a gathering of people of that magnitude at this time is naive. I mean think about it. At this stage, you don't know when international travel would be safe. Someone is saying June, someone is saying longer. Once travel does open up, it would be prudent to study the impact of travel as to whether the coronavirus remains controlled or not."

The official then brought in the human aspect, as he spoke about whether the ICC and Cricket Australia would be willing to take the guarantee of the number of lives that would be involved in the whole process of having a showpiece event.

"The question would then be whether the CA and the ICC are willing to stick their necks out and take the responsibility for such an event, where the number of people converging would be significant. Then it comes down to the governments. Would the Australian government want to take such a risk? If so, what would be the timeline of their approval? Would the time be sufficient for the other boards? Would the governments of other countries permit their teams to travel?" the official questioned.

Finally, the official pointed at the biggest area of concern—fan safety. "Lastly, with the condition that everyone is going through at the moment, would the fans want to gather in a stadium at this stage? Or would the tickets of only one out of 10 seats be made available to keep a semblance of social distancing norms in place?"

Interestingly, current Australia players like Glenn Maxwell have already been vocal about the fact that having a World T20 in empty stadiums would be a difficult scenario.

"It's going to be hard for us to have crowds. I think if IPL goes ahead, they can probably survive without any crowds, but I can't see the T20 World Cup surviving without any people there," Maxwell had told ABC Grandstand. "It's going to be hard for us to justify having a World Cup when we can't get people into the grounds. So I can't see it happening in the near future. We've got to take care of everyone's health and well-being."

Australia's limited-over skipper Aaron Finch echoed the sentiments, as he told SEN Radio: "I think we might have to get our heads around a T20 World Cup that might be postponed for a month, two months, three months, whatever it has to be."

Speaking post the ICC meet, Cricket Australia Chief Executive Kevin Roberts said: "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.

"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."

According to Graeme Smith, BCCI's President Sourav Ganguly could emerge as the top contender for the International Cricket Council (ICC) chief's role. Cricket South Africa (CSA) and its cricket director, Smith has held Ganguly's candidature as the best choice to lead the governing council.

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly was elected as the BCCI President in October last year on an interim basis, for a nine-month long term. As Ganguly tenure in BCCI could end in July, as the Supreme Court might now allow an extension to his term in office, the cricketing fraternity including CSA director Graeme Smith was of the belief that the former India captain's credibility will play an important role for the ICC in such unprecedented circumstances. Smith has hailed Ganguly’s candidature for ICC President as a huge positive for the governing council. 

"The president of the ICC now becomes a very key position in terms of how the game can progress and progress at the right level. It would be great to see a cricket man like Ganguly to get into the role of the ICC president. That will be good for the game. He understands the game, he has played at the highest level and he is respected. That is going to be an interesting time for international and it is going to be a great appointment," Smith said on Thursday during an online conference with journalists, as quoted by Sportstar.

"He (Ganguly) has the credibility and leadership. Someone like Ganguly is best positioned for that (the ICC role)... He is got the credibility, leadership and can take the game forward. The elections are coming, there are, of course, few other names in the hat, but in my opinion, someone with modern (perception) for the game should be the candidate," the former South Africa captain said.

As current ICC chief Shashank Manohar's term is nearing towards its end, there are speculations on Ganguly taking up the spot and the result could be decided in all-important ICC board meeting on May 28 decides. Besides Smith, even CSA’s acting Chief Executive Officer Dr Jacques Faul has agreed with the former South Africa’s captain’s statements.

"We have always closely worked with India and it must play a leadership role in the FTP and a responsible one. Our engagements with Sourav has been positive and his willingness to help us. We have checked with the leadership of CSA on if we would support an Indian candidate (as the ICC chief) and and at this stage, we would. From CSA point of view, we don't see problems in supporting an Indian candidate. But, we need to look who are the others nominated," Faul said.

SHAHID AFRIDI GIVES CONTROVERSIAL STATEMENT ABOUT KASHMIR AND INDIAN CRICKETERS REPLY TO HIM

SHAHID AFRIDI, THE FORMER PAKISTAN CAPTAIN, HAS ONCE AGAIN TRIGGERED A CONTROVERSY OVER KASHMIR.

A video clip of Afridi spewing venom among the people at a village in the PoK and instigating them has gone viral on social media. The former Pakistan captain can be heard criticising Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for deploying a huge force in the Kashmir valley.

SHIKHAR DHAWAN REPLY
"Is waqt jab saari duniya corona se lad rahi hai us waqt bhi tumko kashmir ki padi hai. Kashmir humara tha humare hai aur humara hi rahega. Chaiyeh 22 crore le ao, humara ek, sava lakh ke barabar hai . Baaki ginti apne aap kar lena," Dhawan tweeted.


Is waqt jab saari duniya corona se lad rahi hai us waqt bhi tumko kashmir ki padi hai.
Kashmir humara tha humare hai aur humara hi rahega. Chaiyeh 22 crore le ao, humara ek, sava lakh ke barabar hai . Baaki ginti apne aap kar lena @SAfridiOfficial


Gambhir tweeted.

While Harbhajan said that he has severed "whatever little ties," he had with Afridi. 

"This is very upsetting what Shahid Afridi has come up with, talking ill about our country and our Prime Minister. This is just not acceptable.

This man (Afridi) is talking ill about our country. All I have to say is we have nothing to do with Shahid Afridi. He has no right to speak ill against our country and he should stay in his country and limits," Harbhajan told India Today.

Harbhajan was recently involved in a charity event with Afridi's foundation and was also criticised on social media for being a part of it. But Bhajji clarified that his appeal to help people was a gesture to help those the needy in these trying times.

"To be honest, he (Adridi) asked us to make an appeal for his charity. In good faith, we did it for humanity and for the people suffering due to the Coronavirus.

"Even our Prime Minister has said that Coronavirus is a fight that extends beyond borders, religions and caste. So we were very clear with the cause that we were promoting, which was simply to help those in crisis," Harbhajan said.
