Former Australia captain Dean Jones suggested that the International Cricket Council (ICC) should shift this year’s T20 World Cup from Australia to neighbouring New Zealand.
Jacinda Ardern said NZ could move to alert level 1 next week, which means all social distancing measures and curbs on mass gatherings will be lifted, she said. Maybe play the T20 WC there? #justathought— Dean Jones AM (@ProfDeano) June 3, 2020
The 16-team tournament is scheduled to begin from October 18 and is to take place across eight venues in Australia.
Although the tournament is yet to be postponed, the chances of it going ahead as planned appear slim due to the coronavirus pandemic. The ICC faces the challenge of bringing 16 teams from across the world into one country and creating a bio-secure environment for them.
