    Would ICC be responsible if a player gets infected with Covid-19 during the World T20 in India?

    Cases of Covid are now rising in India, yet ICC is not backing down and would most likely allow the tournament to be held.

    Covid has direct effect on your lungs and treatment could result in taking steroids that results in your body storing fat.

    If Players are to get Covid, would ICC be responsible, as they are trying to get the tournament held in a country which is not safe for health reasons

    The tournament is still six months away. Anything can happen in between. May be IPLís successful completion will give you a clear picture.

    6 months away, but a tournament needs to be shifted now if cases get out of control

    What a dumb question by the OP. Is the ICC officially responsible for Covid Outbreaks in ICC officiated matches throughout the world?

    Getting that many players in 1 area and keeping them all in a bubble will be extremely difficult

    Luckily they have a lot of time to prepare. The IPL will tell us a lot and help a lot with how to manage the bubble.

    6 months til the ball is bowled.

    Every cricketer/ official in WC will be vaccinated long before the start of WC, so this kind of argument is stupid to begin with.

    One or two players is one thing, they will surely have plans in place for that. For a potential outbreak to take place however will be 100% on the shoulders of the ICC.

    Itís an ICC event and no such contract( or wavier) would deem fit in court. ICC canít shift blame or responsibility on others and yet expects to make money from an event.

    I believe one of the two things would happen

    1) Either ICC mandates all participants to be vaccinated
    Or
    2) Event to be moved to backup location( maybe UAE) or postponed it indefinitely.


    IPL will definitely give us better idea.

    From the last peak cases reduced drastically in next 4 months. We have the second wave peak now plus record vaccinations so the cases are likely to again go down in next 4 months

    Then players have to let go of the chance to be part of team. Remember post covid almost every countries will have vaccine requirements for travel purposes. Players wonít be exempted to those rules in future. Sooner or later everyone who wish to travel for whatever reason will be required to carry proof of vaccination. So, why not get vaccinated now?

    Chances are most players will be vaccinated by then. Maybe not in Australia though with the colossal mess up that the government has made of the vaccine rollout so far

    IPL will give clear picture if it's feasible to organize WCT20 in India.

    However, will ICC be responsible if tournament is shifted somewhere else and few players still get the virus during tournament?

    Even if the rate of vaccination is not ramped up further, we should comfortably see herd immunity being reached in the next 6 months with over 70% population vaccinated.

    So, this should not at all be a concern.
