The T20 World Cup is to be played in India later this year. The 2020 T20 World Cup was to be played in Australia, but had to be postponed due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. Now the 2021 T20 World Cup is to be played according to schedule in India. New Zealand coach Gary Stead has said that his team could bring a 20-man squad for the T20 World Cup to India due to challenges posed by the Corona epidemic.
Teams are usually touring with 15 or 16 players in the midst of the Corona epidemic. “The situation at Corona at the moment and the fast things are changing, we can tour with 20 players,” Stead told ‘Stuff.com NZ’.
He said, ‘This will also help in maintaining team balance. There is a possibility that such players will be selected for the World Cup, who have not yet played for New Zealand in T20 cricket. The T20 World Cup will be held in India in October-November. New Zealand is to play a five-match T20 series against Australia from Monday.
