Euro T20 Slam 2020 Postponed Again
The Euro T20 Slam 2020 cricket tournament has been postponed for the second year in a row. The organizers have announced that the tournament has become uncertain due to the coronavirus. The tournament was postponed twice before the start.
The franchise-based tournament was scheduled to start in 2019 in six cities in Scotland, the Netherlands and Ireland. But just before the start, it was postponed. T20 star Martin Guptill of New Zealand, England’s World Cup-winning captain Ian Morgan, Afghanistan’s leg-spinner Rashid Khan and Pakistan’s all-rounder Shahid Afridi were expected to attend the event.
Organizers say they have been hoping to enrich the star in this year’s tournament in recent times. But in a statement, the organizers said that Kovid-19 had an impact on their event. Uncertainty continues due to the ban on international travel. Supporter attendance and quarantine obligations are further hampering this year’s event.
Cricket Ireland chief executive Warren Deutrum said: “Due to the epidemic and various reasons, the organizing committee has decided that it will not be appropriate to start the event in 2020.”
However, he promised to host the event, saying, “If asked for the third time, we are still optimistic about hosting this tournament. Because the European T20 tournament is much more confident in the effectiveness, purpose and interest of this concept. We will continue our efforts to implement it.
