The mass outbreak of COVID-19 has struck more than 200 countries, catching more than 1.6 million cases while 98000 people lost the battle of their lives. To stop the spread, the cricketing world like all the other activities came to a standstill position.
In such a scenario, the possibility of the cancellation of the highly admired Indian Premier League (IPL) cannot be ruled out. However, Australian pacer Pat Cummins doesn’t want to see the 2020 edition of the glamorous T20 tournament getting canceled.
Therefore, the aggressive pacer said that the health of the people comes first and he won’t mind playing the competition before empty stands if it comes to that. He admitted that it would be hard since India is one of the loudest places to play cricket where fans scream a lot. However, he believes that IPL would continue to scale heights of success even if its played without the crowd.
It is important to note that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is currently exploring the October-November window to schedule the 20-over event. However, it can only be possible if the forthcoming T20 World Cup in Australia gets postponed.
