Due to the Coronavirus outbreak there has been a lot of problems around the Country and World.

Cricket also got affected but this year everyone was eyeing on T20 Worldcup which was going to be held on the soil of Australia. Situation right now in Australia is stable but around the world situation is not well. So in that case Cricket Australia has already announced that it is very much difficult rather impossible to hold such an big event like T20 Worldcup. ICC (International Cricket Council ) is not giving any official statement and thus  creating a issue to BCCI (Board of Cricket Control for India) as they are planning IPl in the month of September if Worldcup gets cancelled.

ICC is not describing anything regarding Worldcup as they have had quite a few meetings among their Board of Controllers. BCCI is now complaining that ICC is delaying the decision of Worldcup because they doesnot want to let IPL happen this year. According to sources Shashank Mahonar the chairman of ICC has always been a trouble maker for BCCI. He always creates a rift between the two Governing Boards. ICC held a board meeting earlier this month stating they are waiting to decide and are exploring on contingency plans. They will wait for another month and will then decide what to do.

BCCI on the other hand is accusing Shashank Manohar ICC Chairman for this . The BCCI and Manohar feud is not new. The Nagpur based Lawyer’s frosty relationship with another former BCCI president N Srinivasan is believed to be the root cause of the tensions. BCCI has stated that they are planning IPL (Indian Priemere League ) on the month of september. BCCI also stated that it is difficult and quite impossible to hold it in India so they are in talk with UAE , Srilanka or South Africa. All the respective Cricket Boards have responded well. Srilanka is one of the most suited places to hold this edition of IPL sources revealed. As the Country is having three grounds  – Premadasa , Pallakele and Hambantota. Srilanka will be  more cost effective compared to UAE and South Africa and its an ideal country to host the event in september stated a former Indian Cricket Legend.


Sooner or later decision will be taken and BCCI is all set to organize IPl 2020 if Worldcup cancellation gets confirmed. They even commenced planning of IPL 2020 as the Covid 19 situation around the globe and country is not going to get stable easily. Hope ICC is going to take a decision soon on this. Cricket fans around the globe are eagerly waiting for the decision as Worldcup or IPL. Thus both are having their own levels set and they want to enjoy Cricket for whatever they watch.
