Impact of COVID 19 on Cricket’s Future

Stakeholder 3: CA

Cricket Australia, another board of the big three will stand to lose big bucks if cricket does not resume this year as per schedule. 2 of major cricket events as mentioned above this year are scheduled to happen in Australia. While the chances of World T20 happening this year seems bleak even, they are desperate to Host India in the coming summer. With the cancellation of the India tour, they are predicted to lose a few hundred million Australian Dollars.

               CA has shown interest to host a 5-match test series instead of the usual 4-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy. However, BCCI doesn’t feel it would be possible to play an extra test. Although they are not averse to playing an extra ODI if need be. So, I would give 90% chance of India Tour of Australia taking place. Now that’s a positive. It is learnt in the meantime that any matches let it be domestic or international to be played this year in Australia is confirmed to played inside empty stadiums.
