Australia’s limited-overs captain Aaron Finch believes that compromise would play an essential part if cricket is to bloom again post the Covid-19 pandemic. Australia are to host the T20 World Cup in October, however with the given situations, the most awaited game of the year looks a little dicey.

The International Cricket Committee (ICC) is scheduled to meet by end of this week to discuss the same. If they decide to postpone the T20 World Cup, that opens the door for Board of Cricket Council of India (BCCI) to host the Indian Premier League (IPL) which was pushed from March end to October-Novermber’20 due to the coronavirus outburst.

This has led the Cricket Australia (CA) in dilemma over allowing their star players to be a part of cash-rich tournament. Finch, who is on the board of Australian’s cricket players’ union surmises that considerable compromises have to be made by various boards associated with the game in order to thrive post the Covid-19 phase.

 “It will get to a point, not just for IPL but for all cricket, there’ll be a compromise from a lot of different stakeholders – organisations, countries, players, the ICC – to get cricket back and countries thriving again,” Finch said.

“I think the ICC are meeting next week to start discussing the FTP [Future Tours Program] again. The next couple of weeks we’ll have more idea what that looks like, what compromises will be made for different tournaments and countries. Everyone working together to get the best result for everyone. Some situations where it’s not ideal for Australia we have to compromise and give. It will be one big effort, I think,” he further added.

Australia also have a limited overs series in pipeline against England and Aaron Finch said he would be excited to be on the field if there is any sort of concreteness seen. “I’d be super excited to get any cricket back – if it’s international cricket all the better,” he said. “If it’s done really well with the quarantine bubble and regular testing, I don’t see it being an issue. I’d be keen to get back playing as soon as possible.”
