No decision was taken at the Board meeting of the International Cricket Council on Thursday regarding the T20 World Cup. Now the ICC will decide on this matter on 10 June. There are reports that the T20 World Cup 2020 can be shifted to 2021 or 2022. This may have been a major reason for not deciding on this issue. If we look at the records of the players and the statements of the players in the past, then we come to the same conclusion that foreign cricketers also want that the IPL should be replaced instead of the T20 World Cup this year.
Records show that Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli is also the first choice of IPL. Since 2010, Team India has played 109 T20 Internationals. Of these, Virat has participated in 82. At the same time, Virat has been part of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) since 2008 in the IPL. RCB has played 181 matches since 2008. Of these, Virat has been part of the team in 177 matches.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) gets twice as much revenue from international matches as it gets from IPL every year. These figures are a threat to international cricket. This reason may also eclipse the bilateral series in future.
Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins also preferred the IPL over the T20 World Cup. He said again a few days ago that in the event of the cancellation of the T20 World Cup 2020, IPL would be the best option. Cummins is the most expensive selling foreign cricketer in the IPL. He was bought by Kolkata Knight Riders in the auction for IPL 2020 for 15 crore 50 lakhs.
Pat Cummins received 417 million from Cricket Australia under the Central Contract in 2019. The Test's No.1 bowler played 7 T20 Internationals in 2019. For this, he got about 8 lakh rupees. In this case, they got a total amount of 4.25 crores. If he talks about his earnings from IPL, he can participate in 14 to 17 matches when IPL 2020 happens. This means that on an average each match will get around Rs 1 crore.
Please tell that this year T20 World is proposed to be held in Australia from 18 October to 15 November. There is speculation that the tournament may be postponed until 2022 due to Corona. The BCCI can use that window to host the IPL.
