T20 World Cup in October seems impractical: BCCI

The Board of Control and Cricket in India (BCCI) feels that it seems impractical that the T20 World Cup will take place in October this year. With a 6-month lockdown in Australia, the tournament seems far from happening.

"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," the official said.

"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.", he concluded.

On the other hand, the cricketing boards did not reach any conclusion during the ICC meeting about the fate of the tournament. Moreover, Cricket Australia also did not announce any official decision regarding the tournament.
