Wasim Akram, the former Pakistani fast bowler, thinks the International Cricket Council (ICC) shall not organize the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2020 without the spectator behind closed doors and they shall wait for a little before stepping the feet in the boots of rushing.
The reports opined the cricketing authorities might choose to truncate the tournaments, leagues, series, and tours and might choose to keep it behind closed doors, and as many cricketers have opposed the idea.
Wasim Akram advises ICC not to organize the T20 World Cup 2020 without the spectators
Wasim has not found it as a good idea to drag the T20 World Cup 2020 without spectators behind closed doors. He thinks the spectators bring life to the game and the events like T20 World Cup are all about the fans chants and massive crowds and it will not be fun without them.
“Personally, I don’t think it’s a good idea. I mean, how could you have a cricket World Cup without spectators. A World Cup is all about big crowds, spectators coming from all parts of the globe to support their teams. It’s all about the atmosphere and you cannot get it behind closed doors,” Wasim Akram said, as reported by India Today.
Wasim Akram thinks ICC should wait for a little rather than rushing as it would be better once the lockdown settles. He thinks the Wolrd Cup can be organized with the full swing and without restrictions once the pandemic eases but ICC have to wait for it.
“So I believe that they (ICC) should wait for a more suitable time and once this pandemic subsides and restrictions are eased then we can have a proper World Cup”, the former pacer added.
