Pakistan’s head coach Gary Kirsten feels ‘it could be dangerous to have a World Cup every year’

Pakistan’s white-ball head coach Gary Kirsten has expressed concern over the scheduling of ICC’s marquee tournaments as he feels that having a World Cup every year “could be dangerous” for the game.

Speaking to talkSport, Kirsten mentioned that World Cups and other marquee ICC tournaments should serve as appetizers for the sport and not be scheduled one after the other as it may lead to a loss in interest.

“Sometimes I do get concerned about the lack of context in many games. But does it mean we need to have an ICC event every year? No, I think it could be dangerous to have a World Cup every year or other year because it’s always fun waiting for those events to come around,” said Kirsten.

Notably, the ICC has failed to maintain a decent gap in the scheduling of its marquee tournaments lately.
