T20 WC postponement could pave the way for IPL: Mark Taylor

  • I have no doubt that CA will now be thinking about IPL and maybe not the T20 World Cup- Mark Taylor

Taylor though believes the impending postponement of the global event will pave the way for BCCI to conduct the 13th season of the IPL.

"I think that's the most likely scenario (postponement of T20 World Cup) because 15 teams planning to come to Australia between October and November, 45 matches over a proposed seven venues, national travel is going to extremely hard in the world we are living in", Taylor was quoted as saying in Channel Nine Sports.

"14 days isolation before that makes it even harder".

Taylor said if postponed IPL is held, the travel will be a player's individual responsibility and not his national Board's. Many cricketers do not think that this will be a fair idea as a lot of players might enter the tournament with a lack of form due to lack of game time in the present scenario. They have also now got some time to do some planning.

Citing few problems which may lead to deferment of T20 World Cup, the Board member said that the costs of quarantine arrangements for 16 teams with support staff plus TV crew will be huge and if in some of the countries, normalcy doesn't return, whether travelling will be safe by then. They want India here in this country. "That's what they want and they are already talking about Adelaide Oval as a hub".

Mr Miles said 35 residents of the centre had been relocated, by eight ambulance crews to allow them to quarantine in single rooms. He also advised that 20 volunteer nurses had flown into Rockhampton to assist staff at the North Rockhampton centre.

The situation, however, is not purely centered around commerce, even though the smaller teams outside of the "Big-3" stand to lose in the absence of the T20 World Cup.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) board will hold a video conference on May 28 in which the fate of the T20 World Cup scheduled for October-November in Australia could be decided. "That will come under scrutiny", Taylor observed.

A switch to early 2021 has previously been mooted, but there is no obvious window for it as India's lucrative five-match Test series with England is slated to start in late January. It would also mean England heading straight out of the next global event and into the 2021-22 Ashes in November of next year. "They have got a hotel attached to the ground". But these smaller nations rely on the ICC for their funding.

"The issue for the World Cup is not so much the teams as the crowds and that's probably one of the hurdles we really have to consider and probably one that world cricket will look at pretty closely as well", ESPNCricinfo had quoted Colbeck as saying on the radio station SEN.
