Covid committee to decide on T20 World Cup matches, says ICC

Observer Report

The fate of Twenty20 World Cup matches if players test Covid positive will be decided by a committee and not by the member boards, the global governing body has said.

T20 cricket’s showpiece event begins October 17 in the UAE and Oman with the International Cricket Council hoping for a smooth tournament amid coronavirus concerns.

India’s pull out just two hours before the toss of the fifth Manchester Test due to Covid fears in their camp last month left the England and Wales Cricket board facing financial losses and was a reminder of the uncertain times.

ICC’s acting chief executive Geoff Allardice said any such last-minute decisions will be taken by a bio-safety advisory group.
