Faf du Plessis proposes quarantine period to host this year’s T20 World Cup

Faf du Plessis, former South African captain suggests that the solution to organize the T20 World Cup could be a two-week isolation period before and after the tournament. Currently, the major sport tournaments around the world are under doubt due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

After the sport stopped due to COVID-19, the cricketers have been substantially active on their social media accounts. Du Plessis also made the comment during a live Facebook chat with Tamim Iqbal, the Bangladesh opener.

The T20 World Cup is scheduled to be held later this year in October-November. Suggestions have been made to postpone the tournament from certain authority individuals – including active cricket players.

du Plessis mentioned in the interview, “I’m not sure … knowing that travelling is going to be a problem for many countries and they’re thinking about December or January. But even if Australia isn’t affected like other countries, getting people from Bangladesh, South Africa or India where there’s more unsecured, it’s definitely a health risk for them.” 

He pointed out to Tamim Iqbal, “But you can go in the country (for) two weeks in isolation before the event and then play the game, and then two weeks in isolation afterwards, but I am not sure when South Africa can lift its travel ban, because we can’t go there on boats like old days.” 

Earlier, David Warner, Australian opener had been negative about the scheduling of the T20 World Cup.

He had told Rohit Sharma during a live Instagram chat, “By the looks of it, the ICC World Cup won’t go ahead here. It’ll be hard to bring everybody (16 teams) together.” 

Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Indian Premier League’s 13th season was postponed indefinitely. The event was originally scheduled to begin on March 29.
