Like other sports around the world due to the Kovid-19 epidemic, cricket tournaments are also uncertain. In such a situation, Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins has placed the T-20 World Cup in his priority instead of the Indian Premier League (IPL). Cummins has a strong desire that his country host this tournament later this year.
Cummins is one of the most expensive foreign players in the IPL. In the last auction, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) bought him a hefty price of Rs 15.50 crore. Cummins told the media, 'In the last two-three years we have talked about the T20 World Cup. The World Cup (One-Day) 2015 holds special significance in my career, even though I did not play in the final. I want this tournament (T-20 World Cup) to be organized. He said, 'This is probably the biggest tournament of this year in international cricket. I want everything to be correct and this tournament should be organized. If I were really greedy, I would love to organize IPL too.
There is uncertainty about the conduct of IPL. It was still postponed till 15 April, but due to the continued rise of the coronavirus globally, this rich league is unlikely to be organized at the moment. Former English player Kevin Pietersen suggested that the IPL should start the cricket season. The T20 World Cup is to be held in Australia in October-November.
