The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has caused massive destruction all over the world. Not only it is affecting human existence, but also it devastated the entire sporting scenario. The lockdown imposed by the pandemic has led so many cricket boards to go through major losses.
In this difficult time, Kevin Roberts, Cricket Australia chief is most probably axed this week. According to the reports, he said his destiny would be decided on a board meeting, which will be held in the next 24 hours, while there is a departure report of the chief on Wednesday published by the Sydney Morning Herald. As per the reports, Roberts is axed because of his incapability to manage the COVID-19 lockdown.
In 2018 October, Kevin Roberts was appointed as chief of Cricket Australia by replacing James Sutherland, who resigned after 17 years following the ball-tampering incident involving David Warner, Cameron Bancroft, and Steve Smith shocked the whole world of cricket.
In case Kevin Roberts dismissed from the Cricket Australia, he will accompany Rugby Australia and National Rugby League, Raelene Castle, and Todd Greenberg as victims of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. As per the reports, the pressure of the dismissal has been growing on Roberts since he declared that a maximum of staff members would be laid off because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Recently Kevin Roberts declared the schedule for India series
Kevin Roberts has fixed a schedule for the most awaited tour of India to Australia this year. But, the chances of the T20 World Cup 2020 are still uncertain. By considering the recent circumstances all over the world, the ICC is yet to announce its decision on the tournament.
Considering the coronavirus situation in Australia, there are 730 positive cases and 102 numbers of deaths. But one positive thing is that 6838 people have very well recovered from the virus. Things are coming back to their place slowly in Australia. The improvement of the pandemic situation in Australia might lead the India team to play the series in the presence of audiences.
