Australia’s Pat Cummins keeps fingers crossed for T20 World Cup
DUBAI: Australia fast bowler Pat Cummins expressed excitement for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020, which is scheduled to be played at home in October, while acknowledging that things could ‘change pretty quickly’.
Amid the ongoing global crisis, players have been forced into a long break. Australia had to cancel their limited-overs series against New Zealand last month after just one game and their two-Test series against Bangladesh in June could also be affected.
The Indian Premier League, which Pat Cummins is a part of alongside several other Australians, was shifted from the original start date of 29 March to 15 April, and is likely to be further postponed. Cummins, however, remains optimistic about the Twenty20 World Cup, which is due to take place in October this year. – AFP
