Euro T20 Slam Gets Postponed

The inaugural season of the Euro T20 Slam has been postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19. 

Despite several efforts having been exerted by Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands, uncertainty still loomed over the fate of the inaugural season of the Euro T20 Slam. With that, the event will now be held in 2021 due to the large scale effects of COVID-19. 

As per Cricket Ireland chief executive Warren Deutrom, ‘We had been discussing in recent weeks alternative arrangements to get the competition started - single venue, reduced team and player pool, a shorter competition - and, given the speed with which we set up the Tri-series between the three Boards in Dublin last September, we felt confident to leave the decision as late as possible to give ourselves the best chance to make it work’. 

‘However, we have now run out of road, particularly with the Irish Government's recent decision to delay the next stage of relaxing its restrictions to August 10th and the Slam Board reluctantly reached the conclusion that the uncertainty caused by the pandemic and compromises being made to the original objectives did not make it a viable start in 2020’, he added. 

Aside from that, Warren also reiterated that the boards are still considering all factors and some prudent measures so as to ensure the safety of all especially when it comes to the playing conditions. Still, the three cricket boards have promised to provide a high-quality experience for their players just as how they had promised them prior to the pandemic.
