KARACHI, Monday - World number one Twenty20 batsman Babar Azam said Monday he was praying the coronavirus pandemic would not scupper his first T20 World Cup as Pakistan skipper.

Australia are due to host the seventh Twenty20 World Cup in October and November but organisers face challenges of providing appropriate bio-security and quarantine measures for 15 international teams. Lingering travel restrictions could also hit the event, where forty-five matches are scheduled to be played in seven cities.

"It will be my first World Cup as skipper so I am praying for it and keeping fingers crossed," Azam said in a virtual press conference.

The International Cricket Council will discuss the event at its board meeting in Dubai next week. – AFP
