ICC T20 World Cup 2022: COVID positive players permitted to play match & No regular testing or Isolation requirement by ICC

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has reportedly announced some significant relaxation related to COVID-19 for the T20 World Cup Australia 2022. Cricket players who tested positive will be allowed to play the matches. ICC has made notable changes to corona guidelines regarding playing conditions because rapid vaccination programs worldwide have significantly helped reduce the corona situation.

ICC Rules & Regulation:

According to the latest ICC rules and regulations, testing will not be mandatory during the world cup. Players will not need to be in isolation if a player gets COVID. Regular testing of the players would not be necessary for the players during the tournament. They would instead ask doctors to assess the players entirely and check whether it is appropriate for a player to compete if they test positive.

As per reports, the team is allowed to make a replacement for a COVID positive player in case he does not get the required clearance from team doctors. Players who tested positive for the coronavirus will be dealt with case-by-case, not stopping them from competing. Earlier, the player suffering from corona had to take multiple COVID tests; he also needed to be in an isolation period until he recovered from COVID properly.
