Cricket Australia (CA) may propose the introduction of reserve days for the semifinals of the Men’s T20 World Cup in the ICC Cricket Committee meeting later this 12 months.Earlier this month, the ICC had confronted so much of flak for not maintaining a reserve day for the knockout phases of the Women’s T20 World Cup in Australia.
As a consequence, England had been compelled to make an exit after their semifinal conflict was washed out ensuing in India, the upper ranked facet in the group stage, progressing to the ultimate.As the ICC’s present taking part in circumstances stand, the boys’s T20 World Cup, slated to start right here from October 18, may have no reserve days obtainable earlier than the ultimate on the Melbourne Cricket Ground on November 15.
But, an ICC spokesperson stated, based on a report in cricket.au.com., that taking part in circumstances for the Men’s T20 World Cup will probably be mentioned in the organisation’s Cricket Committee, which is scheduled to fulfill in the center of this 12 months, earlier than they’re formally signed by the Chief Executives Committee (CEC).
Should any of ICC’s member boards want to recommend modifications to taking part in circumstances, they are going to have alternative to take action on the CEC gathering, though it’s uncommon for commonplace taking part in circumstances to be revised at that stage, the ICC spokesperson stated, based on the report.
CA Chief Executive Kevin Roberts, who will probably be half of that CEC meeting, stated a case existed for the inclusion of reserve days in the upcoming males’s T20 World Cup.
“There’s always cause for reflection at the end of any tournament or any season, in terms of how you approach future tournaments,” Roberts stated.
He, nonetheless, conceded that there was a legitimate argument to take care of the taking part in circumstances that ruled the previous ladies’s event.
“In saying that, there will be people who suggest there should be semi-final reserve days for the men’s. But I’m not sure how the English women’s team would feel about that, not having had a reserve day in their leg of the tournament,” he stated.
“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.”He stated the taking part in circumstances had been usually decided earlier than a event begins.
“We haver got two events here – women’s and men’s – within the one tournament, albeit staged at different times of the year,” Roberts stated.
The final 12 months’s males’s 50-over World Cup included the availability of reserve days for knock-out finals, in maintaining with present taking part in circumstances for the ICC’s males’s and ladies’s ODI tournaments.
