The scheduled Australia-India three-match T20I series in October, may not see the daylight as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is looking to cancel the visit of the Indian team Down Under just for a three-match T20I series. This series was supposed to be the precursor to the World Cup, which is scheduled to begin from 18th October.
Top sources within BCCI have confirmed to Times Now that Indian cricket team will not play the T20I series which is scheduled to take place from October 11 – October 17, 2020. BCCI is not in favor of making its team travel back and forth for 3 T20I internationals, with the Test series starting on December 3. Gabba, Brisbane.
“If the T20 World Cup does not happen, the 3-match T20I series makes no sense for our players. Everything was decided to keep in line with the schedule of the T20 World Cup. We need to avoid unnecessary travel. We will see to it that the T20I series is clubbed with the Test series in December later this year. The postponement of the T20 World Cup will give us the much-needed space to play some other bilateral series,” the source was quoted as saying to Times Now.
