IPL 2020 : Mumbai Indians Trent Boult not too sure about playing in IPL 2020

IPL 2020 in UAE is now looking real with the T20 World Cup postponement but Mumbai Indians Trent Boult has declared that he is unsure of participating in IPL 2020. 

New Zealand spearhead Boult is set to take a wait and watch policy about his participation in this year’s IPL. With ICC announcing the postponement of the World Cup 2020, which was supposed to take place in Australia in October-November, it is only a matter of time before BCCI announces the new schedule of IPL using the same window. Considering the situation of Covid-19 pandemic in India, the tournament in all probability will be held in the UAE.

Boult, who came out of Delhi Capitals to join his former teammate Mitchell McClenaghan, said he will talk to the right people before taking a decision on his participation in the IPL.

“I’ll talk to the right people and then make that decision on what’s best for me, best for my cricket and obviously what’s best for my young family…there’s obviously a couple of other New Zealanders involved in that tournament – but it’s just going to have to be one of those ‘time will tell’ kind of things,” Boult was quoted as saying by new Zealand portal One News.

“I want to be out there playing and doing the things that I know how to do …but it still looks like it’s going to be a wee while before crowds are screaming at us and being right behind us but I can’t wait as it’s been a long time between overs – no-one wants to be stuck inside a tent in the middle of winter training,” Boult added.
