World cricket is facing a crisis due to coronavirus, which has also been a huge loss in terms of finance for different cricket boards around the world. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has set up a conference call on April 23 (tomorrow) as the board members analyze the present and future action plans to continue cricket.
The board including 12 full committee members and representatives from three associate boards will participate in the call to figure out an international calendar that may include modifications in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The members participating will discuss the rules that different countries are following to reduce the spread of the virus and plan as such to conduct the international tournaments. It’s already known that the mega tournament IPL 2020 had to be in progress now and was suspended indefinitely by the BCCI.
There would be discussion on whether or not the fixed schedule for the upcoming World cup taking place in Australia can be conducted and the practical thoughts of taking it forward during the fixed tenure of Oct-Nov 2020. Likewise there are many bilateral series that are put on hold for the time being and many boards have been fixing these schedules to allow the players with better performances for the forthcoming world cup.
