He could be the IPL’s costliest foreign player however Australian tempo spearhead Pat Cummins would quite see the T20 World Cup performed at residence as an alternative of the profitable T20 league in India.

“The T20 World Cup is something we’ve spoken about for the best part of two or three years. The (ODI) World Cup in 2015, that was absolutely a career highlight for me and I wasn’t even playing in the final. I’d love to see that go ahead,” Cummins was quoted as saying by the ‘Australian Associated Press’.

“That’s probably the big tournament this year for international cricket … I’d love for that to happen in a perfect world and if I was to be really greedy, I’d love for the IPL to happen as well.”

Cummins turned the most costly foreign purchase within the IPL on the public sale in December when Kolkata Knight Riders shelled out a whopping Rs 15.50 crore for his companies. There isn’t any definitive phrase on the IPL but after it was postponed to April 15 as a result of coronavirus. The Indian Express had reported earlier that it was more likely to be cancelled.

Earlier this week, Cummins had spoken about how he hoped that the IPL would be performed.

“Everyone is still really keen for it (IPL) to go ahead, but the priority is to minimise risk of it spreading,” Cummins had said.

“This year’s going to look very different to what we’ve seen before … there are so many scenarios. Unless things improve, I can’t really see many tournaments going on anywhere in the world for a little while,” he had stated.

Former England batsman Kevin Pietersen has suggested that the IPL ought to kick-start the cricketing season and be held earlier than the T20 World Cup, scheduled in October-November.
