Reserve days for the knockout stages of this year’s men’s T20 World Cup is on the cards. Cricket Australia is keen to welcome the idea and the discussions are on.

The story

The semi-finals for the upcoming T20 World Cup scheduled to be hosted by Cricket Australia on November 11 and November 12. Sydney and Adelaide will be held the knockouts whereas Melbourne will host the Final on November 15. The recently concluded Women’s World Cup T20 saw the semi-final match between India and England getting abandoned due to heavy rains. India reached the final whereas England had to leave the tournament even without playing the game because of their comparatively low points at the end of the group stage.

This obviously did not go with most of the people. ICC was criticised for not keeping any reserve day for such an important stage in a World Cup. So now Cricket Australia is keen to apply the idea in the semi-final stage. For the final match, there is already a reserve day kept in case of any rainy days.

Eyes on ICC meeting

Although ICC does not have any such rules and regulations, it is expected for the global cricket authority to reconsider the call during a meeting of the Chief Executives Committee later this year to discuss the playing conditions.

Kevin Roberts, Cricket Australia’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will attend the ICC’s CEC meeting who said to, “I would imagine the playing conditions are in place for the women’s and men’s events within this tournament (in 2020) and can be discussed and considered after that’s completed. Typically, the playing conditions are determined before a tournament starts and we’ve got two events here – women’s and men’s – within the one tournament, albeit staged at different times of the year”

An ICC spokesperson meanwhile confirmed the playing conditions for the men’s T20 World Cup are not expected to be different from the women’s one.
