ICC will take bubble break during tournament “very seriously”

The ICC is hosting its first world championship since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic when the 2021 T20 World Cup for men begins on October 17. The 16-team tournament is played in the UAE and Oman, countries with some of the highest proportions of the population vaccinated against Covid-19.
