The Australian bowler, Pat Cummins, thinks that the Indian cash-rich league, Indian Premier League’s thirteenth season could have worked as a practicing platform for the upcoming T20 World Cup.
The cash-rich league was all set to be commenced by 29th March but it faced many obstacles in its way of scheduling as the lockdown kept on extending and still exists amidst the Coronavirus. Now, there are no comments over the authentic schedule for IPL. Cancelation of the T20 World Cup can be used as an open chance for IPL organizers to hold their cash-rich league’s thirteenth edition.
However, the news are saying that ICC is to hold a meeting on 28th May to decide the fate of the ICC T20 World Cup which is most likely to get canceled. According to the existing schedule, the World Cup is likely to be commenced by 18th October. IPL before World Cup could probably have served as a practicing platform as both the tournaments are twenty-twenty.
Most of the ratio of IPL comprises of the Australians so they are equally disturbed as Indians are. Canceling of the cash-rich league has brought a halt to the practicing activities of both sides.
Pat Cummins thinks nothing would have been better if they would have got a platform for practicing pre-T20 World Cup.

“The reason it (IPL) was so important for so many players this year was leading into a T20 World Cup, and even if that does get moved, it’s still going to be on at some stage. You look at what’s the best opportunity for your cricket and what you’re going to get the most out of,” Cummins said.
