Earl Eddings, chairman of Cricket Australia, said it was “impossible” to review the reality. Former star cricketer Mike Hussey scared of hosting the T20 World Cup 2020 as it seems like a nightmare. However, the ICC could not reach a final decision despite repeated discussions.

Mike Hussey said in a podcast called Hotspot, ‘Honestly, I’m a little scared of hosting the T20 World Cup 2020. I think it would be the right decision to bring the teams here (Australia) to host the tournament, to keep them in isolation and to prepare well while maintaining a safe environment. ‘

‘But it seems logically a nightmare to me to blow up so many teams together and keep them separate to prepare them properly and then play around in different venues across the country. From what we hear, it seems that this year’s T20 World Cup may be postponed to 2021 or 2022.

He added, ‘I think India’s tour of Australia is moving forward positively. I think it’s relatively easy to bring a certain team here and ensure all the security is in order. ‘
‘For example, a hotel has been built next to the Adelaide Oval Stadium. Where Indians can build their own abode. They will be able to continue their training very well and play against Australia with good preparation.

Mike Hassey, who has scored more than 12,000 runs for Ajit, said that he is in a very difficult position regarding the Coronavirus infection. According to him, the game should be stopped only if one is positive about this virus.

The 45-year-old Australian said: ‘The virus is very dangerous. If you think that one is positive then those around him are also at risk. It can even infect the whole group. ‘

‘What are you going to do? A maximum of 5-6 cricketers can be prepared. This is also difficult in many cases. If someone proves to be corona positive or Laxman is seen in someone, then the whole game should be stopped immediately.

Pakistan Cricket Board PCB looking for sponsors

Meanwhile, PCB is still looking for the sponsors of the Pakistan team has not been finalized yet even though England has already reached to play the Test and T20 series. The whole process has become complicated, with only one organization showing interest.

Even if Corona returns to the next field, it is not known that it will suddenly be normal. Most of the matches will be ‘close door’ with the change in the conventional rules. As a result, it is unlikely that the boards will get too many sponsors commercially. But the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has to suffer from the main sponsor of the team.

A beverage company sponsored the last contract with PCB. Although the contract expired a few days ago, the PCB did not get any new sponsors.

However, many believe that the board has failed to attract institutions through the domestic cricket structure.

The PCB, however, are hopeful their new sponsor will be finalized before the start of the series against England. Pakistan will play three equal Test and T20 matches against England. The series is scheduled to start on July 30 with the first Test.
