Michael Vaughan Stated One Shouldn’t Get Hopes On ICC T20 World Cup:
Former England captain Michael Vaughan said one shouldn’t have any expectations for this year’s ICC T20 World Cup in Australia. The showpiece game featuring 16 teams will be played between October 18th and November 15th, but due to coronavirus outbreak it’s fate has been put in doubt. More than 460,000 were infected with the virus and more than 21,000 died worldwide. Such figures continue to increase daily as the entire globe is experiencing its wrath.
Vaughan claims these times are unparalleled and could also affect the T20 World Cup later in the year. “Once we are talking about sport, the most important thing is that it is always secondary to what is happening to a lot of people around the world,” Vaughan told Fox League Live on Thursday.

“You’d think it’ll be all right by then but you just don’t know,” Vaughan said regarding World Cup T20. “There are days beyond precedent. “The advice we get here is changing every day. Just two weeks ago we all thought it was just a very bad case of flu, but a couple of days later reality started to set in for all of us that it was much worse than that.
The sporting calendar of the world has been destroyed due to coronavirus, in a year when many international competitions were set to take place. The bilateral cricket series was called off while national T20 leagues were hit as well. Indian Premier League’s launch has been moved back from March 29 to April 15 but it remains doubtful that it will commence on that particular day.
Due to the major danger posed by Covid-19, other sporting competitions like Euro 2020 and Olympics 2020 have also been delayed until next year.
