ICC Confirms ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 Still Has No Threat
Though the novel COVID-19 or coronavirus is dominating the world, the International Cricket Council (ICC) still believes that the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 can be organised successfully according to the scheduled time.
According to the schedule, Australia will host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 between 18th October and 15th November 2020. In the last February-March, Australia successfully hosted the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 which Australia Women won after thrashing the India Women in the final of that tournament. However, the present situation is different in just one month as the coronavirus has widely affected the world.
More than 1,300,000 people have been affected due to coronavirus while more than 70,000 deaths have been reported in this case. Like many other countries, Australia is also suffering in this virus as more than 5,500 coronavirus cases have been reported, including 41 deaths.
To beat the coronavirus, many countries are following the complete lockdown process in the hope of breaking the chain of this virus. Australia is also following the same rules. However, like the other countries, Australia is also struggling to control the situation.
We are planning for the event to go ahead as scheduled: ICC about the future of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020
The ICC and the local organising committee are monitoring the situation closely. While there is still enough time, the ICC believes that the tournament can still go on according to the plan.
ICC stated, “In response to the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Local Organising Committee is monitoring the situation closely with relevant authorities and will continue to do so. The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is scheduled to take place from 18 October – 15 November 2020 in seven venues across Australia. We are planning for the event to go ahead as scheduled.”
The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 will be the seventh edition of this tournament. However, Australia will host this tournament for the first time. A total of 16 teams will participate in this tournament. While the top eight-ranked T20I sides, including the hosts, will start this tournament during the Super 12 or second round of this tournament, the other eight qualified teams will begin this tournament through the first round.
In the first round of the tournament, eight teams have been divided equally into two groups. At the end of this first round, the top two teams of each group will advance for the Super 12 stage.
In the Super 12 stage, the 12 teams have been divided equally into two groups. The top two teams in the final points table of the Super 12 stage will qualify for the semi-finals.
