Oct 16 (SportsStar) – International Cricket Council (ICC), the world governing body for the sport, has relaxed rules related to COVID-19 for the Men’s t20 World Cup in Australia. Players, despite testing positive, will be permitted to compete.
According to a cricket.com.au report, the ICC says there will be no mandatory testing during the event and no isolation period if a player gets COVID-19, instead asking team doctors to take the call and “to assess whether it is appropriate” for players to compete if they get COVID-19. The Australian Federal Government’s mandatory isolation requirements for those who contract COVID-19 ended earlier this week.
During the 2021 T20 World Cup held in UAE where Australia clinched the title, there were strict bio-security protocols.
