Recent Match Report – Sussx 2nd XI vs Surr 2nd XI 2021

Published

on


These were circumstances that, ordinarily, make cricketers question their life choices. A biting, blustery day on the South Coast, with a ragged wind harassing the bowlers in their run-ups and the batters in their stances. The first-team squad went through their paces for a while in the nets behind the square, but not a soul in the flats overlooking the 1st Central County Ground bothered to poke their heads out to observe the twos going about their business – Sussex versus Surrey in the Second XI County Championship.

The sun made infrequent appearances, but only of the “look what you could have won” variety. Slip fielders stood stiff-limbed in the cordon, hands jammed deep into pockets, When people talk of four-day cricket being pushed to the margins of the summer, these are the clichéd conditions that the mind’s eye conjures up.

And yet, these were also the conditions in which one of the most sought-after cricketers on the planet was making his comeback from injury. For a man who spends most of his professional life on the road – or, in the current climate, in hotel-rooms of varying degrees of solitude – home, aka Hove, is most definitely where Jofra Archer’s heart is.

After IPL 2021 postponement, UAE becomes realistic contender for T20 World Cup in October-November 2021

IPL 2021 was meant to be a test case for the BCCI to understand if the T20 World Cup could’ve been held in a ‘caravan model’

Will the postponement of the IPL have an impact on the 2021 men’s T20 World Cup, scheduled in India later this year?

It is clearly too early to say as the fallout from the postponement of the IPL is yet to settle, after the number of cases inside the bubble began to rise over the last few days. But ESPNcricinfo understands that while the ICC continues to monitor the situation in India, the UAE, which has been slotted in as a back-up venue, is now becoming a more realistic contender to host the global tournament.

As it stands, the T20 World Cup, comprising 16 countries, is scheduled to be played in India between late October with the final on November 14.

The BCCI recently shortlisted nine venues in India, which were proposed to the ICC, the host for global tournaments. An ICC team of experts from the biosafety, events and security wings was scheduled to visit India from April 26 to do an inspection of the venues but was forced to shelve that plan due to the travel ban imposed by the UAE to and from India.
