After the postponement of IPL 2021 due to the second wave of Corona in India, all eyes are now on whether the country will be in a position to host the T20 World Cup in October-November? Or it will be held in the UAE. Australian fast bowler Pat Cummins believes it is too early to decide. According to a report by the Sydney Morning Herald, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) Pacer has said that cricket officials will have to work with the Indian government and see what is good for the people.
Cummins told the Herald, "It's too early to say anything now." It is for six months. The priority of cricket officials should be that they should work with the Indian government and see what is good for the Indian people. If it's not safe, I don't think it's right to play here. This is the first question that must be answered. '
Commenting on Corona's situation in India, Cummins said, 'I was feeling quite helpless. We were playing and training as before. Just felt that I should do something for people. The first thing I wanted to make sure was that the decision to play IPL was correct. Was talking to people at home. Some believed that cricket was not right here while growing Corona cases.
Cummins went on to say, 'The response I was getting from people in India was just the opposite. He said that those trapped in the lockdown appreciate the fact that they can watch the IPL for three or four hours each night. It helps to keep them in homes. Everybody was thinking that it is a very positive thing that IPL is still going on. '
Only after this did Cummins feel that he should do something for the people in India and he went ahead and extended a helping hand. He said, 'I was thinking what can I do? India has been very good for me as a player. The people here are quite amazing. I wanted to help people. ' Cummins was the first person who came forward to contribute to help the Indian people fight the epidemic. He said that the IPL could have been played in the UAE, but millions of people wanted it to be held in India.
