Greg Berkeley plans to host the Cricket World Cup in the United States
Greg Berkeley has just been appointed to the International Cricket Council (ICC). Greg Berkeley is the new chairman of the ICC and plans to host the Cricket World Cup in the United States soon after taking office. He said that he has various plans to spread cricket in the world like football. Greg wants to host cricket in the United States either as a host with the Caribbean island of the West Indies or as a soloist.
“We could either host the Cricket World Cup in the US as a co-host with the West Indies,” he said. We have to try to get the best out of cricket.
The whole world is in turmoil. It has also had a huge impact on sports. Cricket has had to change the schedule of various bilateral series, including the World Cup. However, Berkeley wants to fix these damaged schedules.
“We couldn’t actually create a calendar for the tournament,” he said. There are many ideas about whether it will be six, seven, or eight events. I really have no choice. I just want to make sure, whatever we do we want to get the best result for cricket. I know there will be a lot of effort to organize eight events so that the ICC can be successful commercially and make more money. ‘
The former New Zealand board chief thinks the cricket calendar should be further curtailed by thinking of the cricketers.
“I don’t think we think much about cricket and the outcome of cricket,” he said. Especially from the point of view of cricketers, they will not be able to play so much cricket. Only in terms of health, safety, and welfare. It is not sustainable. I think we have to work on it. We need to make arrangements so that our best athletes can match them on the world stage. They have to be allowed to live outside of cricket.
