ICC T20 World Cup 2020 statement: Australian bushfire crisis
We are devastated by the destruction caused to communities, families and wildlife by the bushfires across Australia, and our thoughts are with all those affected by this crisis.
We encourage the global cricket family to support relief efforts through our charity partner UNICEF Australia, who is prioritising bushfire emergency relief and has established a fund and action plan to assist children in bushfire affected areas. People can support by donating here: unicef.org.au/bushfire-response.
In addition, tournament hosts Cricket Australia are supporting a range of initiatives, including encouraging people to donate to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund here: https://www.redcross.org.au/cricket.
The ICC T20 World Cup 2020 is working with the International Cricket Council, Cricket Australia, partners and stakeholders to give support to fundraising and relief efforts wherever we can.
