Wasim Akram suggests ICC to not have T20 World Cup 2020 behind the closed doors

What?

Wasim Akram has said that it won’t be a great idea to have the T20 World Cup tournament behind closed doors.

When?

This news was reported by 'CricTracker' on June 5, 2020.

Why?

“Personally, I don’t think it’s a good idea. I mean, how could you have a cricket World Cup without spectators. A World Cup is all about big crowds, spectators coming from all parts of the globe to support their teams. It’s all about the atmosphere and you cannot get it behind closed doors,” Wasim Akram said.

Who?

Wasim Akram is a Pakistani cricket commentator, coach and former cricketer, captain of Pakistan national cricket team.

How?

“So I believe that they (ICC) should wait for a more suitable time and once this pandemic subsides and restrictions are eased then we can have a proper World Cup”, Wasim Akram added.
