Cricket’s T20 World Cup
As the Cricket’s T20 World Cup in Australia nears its halfway mark, it has produced bizarre performances, shocks, and, of course, controversy. Throw in an epic Pakistan-India MCG duel for the ages, and it’s been a remarkable first few weeks of the event, which was delayed by two years due to the Covid-19 epidemic.
Despite this, things haven’t gone totally smoothly, with erratic weather on Australia’s east coast causing disruption. None more so than on Friday, when bad weather in Melbourne forced the cancellation of two games, including the much-anticipated match between Australia and England, which was expected to draw more than 70,000 spectators to the MCG.
The weather in Australia at the Cricket’s T20 World Cup, especially in notoriously volatile Melbourne, has been trending on social media, owing mostly to obsessive supporters in the subcontinent concerned about whether their teams would be affected.
Weather patterns have been altered and there has been much more rain on Australia’s east coast as a result of a phenomena known as La Nina, which happens every few years. If games are canceled, which has occurred many times, spectators get a full refund at the expense of the organizers. The organizers will have to pay millions in compensation, according to The Daily Telegraph.
It has prompted inevitable debate over the tournament’s timing at the Cricket’s T20 World Cup, which coincides with the start of the Australian cricket season and a shift from the popular sports codes of Australian rules football and rugby league.
Cricket enters its Australian season, which culminates over the summer school vacations in December and January. Cricket dominates the popular awareness during the festival season, when warm weather is associated with Australia, yet the Cricket’s T20 World Cup cannot be scheduled at this time owing to the international cricket calendar’s constraints.
With so many T20 franchise leagues sprouting up, and predictions that the filthy wealthy Indian Premier League will only grow, the optimal time for Cricket’s T20 World Cup – ODI and T20 – is from mid-to-late in the year. That corresponds with monsoon season in India, where organizing matches at that time would be a huge waste of money.
Of course, this leaves little space for the event to be held in Australia. The 2015 World Cup in Australia was held in February and March, towards the tail end of the summer, when the public is still in cricket mood and momentum from the season has been established.
Apart from when powerful India and its legions of adoring supporters arrive in town, this event has been mostly out of sight at the Cricket’s T20 World Cup. There wasn’t much hype during the tournament’s week-long stay in Perth, a city that had only just emerged from the grip of the dominating Australian Football League’s post-season transfer machinations.
Even India’s marquee match against South Africa drew 44,000 spectators, which was less than expected at the Cricket’s T20 World Cup. Fortunately, bad weather remained away in a city where rain is scarce from October to April, however temperatures dropped to mid-winter levels on Sunday, which may have put off some visitors.
Still, there’s little sense grumbling since there doesn’t seem to be an option for when Australia will host the Cricket’s T20 World Cup with New Zealand in 2028.
There is some good news. The permutations have been thrown into disarray, and the stakes have been heightened with each game, which is a silver lining in this rain-soaked event. There is now greater motivation for teams to be more daring and aggressive in order to increase their net run rate, which may be the difference between reaching the semi-finals or not.
It’s made for an exciting Cricket’s T20 World Cup and a leveller, with some Associates and smaller Full Members winning big and demonstrating they deserve more chances against the major teams. Powerhouses and favorites Australia, England, and India have all previously been defeated.
The matches have been generally exciting, with a lot of low-scoring thrillers seeing ball overpowering bat, which is unusual in a system geared towards hitters at the Cricket’s T20 World Cup. Powerplay seam movement has been noticeable, making batting especially slow and teams unable to get off to signature flyers.
A benefit of the earlier start in the calendar is that pitches aren’t as hard yet, and spicier wickets and a more balanced duel between bat and ball have come from the gloomier overhead circumstances at the Cricket’s T20 World Cup. Quick bowlers have seen a revival in this format, as spinners were formerly regarded as more important and more difficult to score off.
Despite the elements, the ensuing unpredictability has propelled one of the finest World Cups in history.
