Former West Indian quick bowler Michael Holding stated the BCCI can consider holding IPL 2020 if the ICC T20 World Cup will get pushed ahead. There is doubt over the conduct of the worldwide event too within the wake of the pandemic because the Australian Government has closed the nation’s borders at the least until September.
The ICC T20 World Cup is scheduled to be held in Australia throughout October-November this 12 months.
“I don’t think ICC is delaying the T20 World Cup because they are making space for the IPL. It’s the Australian government’s law where they are not allowing any visitors into the country before a specific date,” Holding stated in an Instagram Live chat.
“But if there is no T20 World Cup, the BCCI has all rights to go ahead and organise a domestic tournament because there’s a space. If they are encroaching on other people’s tournament, you could say okay,” he stated.
The West Indian legend stated gamers have to get used to saliva ban within the put up Coronavirus world.
“First of all, I don’t think this saliva ban is a serious problem. The problem with this ban is that the cricketers will take some time to adjust. It’s a natural reaction when you are on the field and you want to shine the ball, you use saliva,” he stated.
“All you could do is to get moisture on the ball and you may get that out of your sweat. You haven’t got to make use of the standard saliva. The perspiration out of your arm or your brow will do the identical job as saliva.
“And I’ve not heard anybody say that COVID-19 may be unfold by perspiration. I do not suppose any sensible downside in banning saliva. It’s only a logistical downside of individuals being accustomed to do it and should follow not doing it,” he added.
