Dean Jones fears the future of all T20 leagues except IPL

Dean Jones, the former Australian player, is a notable name in the world of cricket. He is working fluently and closely with many T20 leagues around the world. Jones has also worked as a coach of Karachi Kings this year in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Dean Jones has posted tweets on his Twitter account on which in detail, he has discussed the future of T20 leagues other than IPL. He thinks that financial disruptions can minimize the number of leagues to two-three. He also mentioned that broadcasters will be having no cash to pay after the Coronavirus crisis will end.

Jones posted many tweets in brief in which he also gave an idea to hold a conference where new strategies for marketing and utilizing revenues from them can be discussed. The broadcasting market is down due to the Coronavirus crisis and a solution can only be implied when players will cut off their wages.

“IPL will always exist.. but I fear the future of all T20 Leagues around the world. They need to get their price/financial models right.. or only 2-3 T20 Leagues will survive.”

“Except for IPL… The future of T20 cricket is in the hands of the current player.. unless they drop their wages.. I cannot see Broadcasters paying big money now.. after COVID19.”

“I think all of the T20 cricket Leagues can survive.. but if the players want to be major stakeholders.. then they have to lower their wages for other Leagues to survive. Broadcasters are now struggling.”

“I think a big conference with a “Big think tank” for all T20 Leagues should happen.. how can they market it better? Get better returns? And communicate with each other for a better chance of survival.” posted Jones.
