Cricket Australia itself has stated that it’s a bit “unrealistic” to stage the T20 World Cup as per schedule within the present circumstances however the ICC is but to take a last name on the matter. Hussey too would not see the showpiece occasion happening this 12 months.

“But having to bring a number of teams and getting them to isolate to prepare and then move around the country to different venues I think that will be a logistical nightmare. From what we are hearing perhaps the T20 World Cup will have to be postponed for 2021 or even 2022,” stated the southpaw.
The India tour of Australia that has been scheduled after the T20 World Cup is more likely to go forward as per the plan, in keeping with Hussey.
“I’m much more constructive concerning the Indian tour of Australia going forward and the reason being bringing one group to tour right here and getting them to a hub is less complicated.
“For instance Adelaide Oval has simply constructed a lodge related to the stadium, so the Indian group may base themselves there, practice and put together for a collection, and play in opposition to Australia.
“We have all got our fingers crossed, as we know that this pandemic keeps throwing these curve balls and we need to adapt and move quickly,” stated Hussey.
England are at the moment internet hosting the West Indies for a three-Test collection beginning on July 8, marking resumption of worldwide cricket after a four-month hiatus attributable to the pandemic.
Talking about cricket in a bio-secure surroundings, Hussey stated the collection must be known as off in case a participant assessments constructive for coronavirus, the potential of which is excessive.
“Because of how contagious this virus is, you’ll suppose if one particular person has received it or is affected, with how shut everyone seems to be in proximity, it’s most likely going to be handed on to quite a few folks within the group.
“What are you going to do? You must substitute 5-6-7 members of the group, that can be very powerful. If somebody does check constructive or exhibits signs, they’ve to instantly name off the sport,” he added.
