With the terror of Covid-19 gripping the entire globe, everyone has been confined to their homes and all sporting activity has come to a complete standstill. The IPL at the moment is looking like a distant dream and there are already concerns about the World T20 to be held in Australia in October-November.
When the number 1 fast bowler in the world, Patrick Cummins was asked which tournament would he choose if only one of them were to take place. The priciest foreigner in the history of the IPL auctions, interestingly had no qualms in stating that he would rather the World T20 take place than the IPL.
In a perfect world, Pat Cummins would want both tournaments to take place but he said since their national team has been preparing for the home World T20 for the better part of 3 years, it would not be tough for him to choose the tournament over the cash-rich league. His answer is quite refreshing in the wider scope of things as increasingly in cricket club is taking precedence over country. Perhaps, it’s also a reflection of how well played Australian cricketers are and how well managed their board is.
