It is a “no brainer” that ICC ought to introduce reserve days for all World Cup knockout matches, together with the boys’s T20 showpiece later this yr, Australian fast Mitchell Starc mentioned on Saturday.
England girls’s workforce was left aggrieved on Thursday after its semifinal conflict towards India was washed out with out a ball being bowled and it despatched Harmanpreet Kaur and Co. into the summit conflict as a consequence of their high end in the group stage.
“In my opinion, it’s a no-brainer,” Starc was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au. “I’m sure if both games were washed out, everyone would be barking mad at the ICC for no reserve days. Considering it’s a double header, there’s obviously no downside for either team with turnaround for time between finals.”
Starc, who left Australia’s tour of South Africa halfway to look at his spouse Alyssa Healy play in the T20 World Cup closing towards India, known as for inclusion of reserve days in multi-nation tournaments.
“I only heard the other day that it’s the same (rules) for ours,” he mentioned.
“It’s not for me to change the rules. It’s up to the ICC. If that’s the way they go for our World Cup, I think it needs to be looked at for World Cups and all world events going forward.” Australia is about to host the boys’s T20 World Cup from October 18 to November 15.
