The mass outbreak of COVID-19 has created a lot of uncertainties in the cricketing world. Particularly, the prospects of holding the upcoming edition of the T20 World Cup in Australia aren’t bright. While the International Cricket Council (ICC) is yet to make anything official, the chances are that the mega-event might get pushed to the year 2021.
Recently, flamboyant Australian batsman Chris Lynn reflected on the subject by calling it a ‘logistical nightmare’ to host teams coming from all over the world. The increased population, in the opinion of the 30-year old cricketer, would create a plethora of issues. Therefore, he is not in favor of hosting the T20 World Cup in the original October and November window.
“My personal opinion is no. Having teams coming from all over the world is going to be a logistical nightmare. Hotels, travel, keeping the teams in the hotels for a number of weeks before the tournament is going to be a tough work moving forward,” opined by Lynn while reflecting on the forthcoming showdown tournament in Australia.
