T20 World Cup: The ICC will Announces the Postponment of T20 on Monday

The future of this year's T20 World Cup in Australia will be decided on Monday's ICC meeting, when the International Cricket Council (ICC) board meets virtually on Monday with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) hoping for a postponement to ensure that the Indian Premier League (IPL) can go ahead.. The World Cup was scheduled to take place in Australia from October 18 to November 15. However, the T20 World Cup is expected to be postponed due to the spread of the corona virus.

If this year's T20 World Cup is postponed, it will be held in 2022 as well. The T20 World Cup will be held in India next year as well. Earlier in the day, the Australian Cricket Board had ruled out the possibility of hosting the T20 World Cup in Australia this year.

The BCCI had already started trying to hold the Indian Premier League at that time after the T20 World Cup was postponed. This year's T20 World Cup will be held in the UAE as the corona virus is not under control in India.

The global event is supposed to be held from October 18 to November 15 in Australia but the country's cricket board had, in May itself, expressed its inability to host amid a second surge of COVID-19 cases in the state of Victoria.

"The first step was postponement of Asia Cup, which has happened. We can only start to move ahead with our plans after the ICC announces the postponement (of T20 World Cup). They have been sitting on the decision even after Cricket Australia said that they are not too keen on hosting the event," a BCCI Apex Council member told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
