"How you could have world cup without spectators?" Akram questions about T20 WC 2020

Wasim Akram is a former Pakistani Cricket Player & represented in One-Day-Internationals & Test matches for Pakistan National cricket team. He is widely acknowledged as one of the Greatest bowlers of all time. He is an Left-arm bowler who could bowl with significant pace and he is also known as 'Sultan of Swing'.

The ICC T20 World Cup last held in India in 2016, is scheduled to take place in Australia in between the month of October & November this year. Akram believes that International Cricket Council (ICC) should wait for some more time to host & begin the T20 World Cup. Because he believes that World Cup is all about crowd, spectators coming from across the world to support their team. The ICC could decide the tournament's fate on June 10 as there are still lot of travel restrictions in place and getting all the teams in Australia, is going to be a tough task.

Former Pakistani Cricketer Wasim Akram told to 'The News' on Thursday that,"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 atmosphere and you cannot get it behind closed doors."

"So I believe that they should wait for a more suitable time and once this pandemic subsides and restrictions are eased then we can have a proper World Cup," Akram said

Akram also spoke about the new rule from ICC of banning the use of saliva to shine the ball. He said that,"I'm sure fast bowlers won't like it if they are stopped from using saliva to shine the ball. They are allowing sweat nut I can say for sure that isn't the same."

He also added that,"You shine the ball with saliva and sweat is just something of an add-on, a top-up. Too much use of sweat will leave the cricket ball too wet. I believe that they will need to find a reasonable solution. But I would say that they will need to find a quick fix to this problem."
