While all the sporting events have been on a stand still since mid-March, the T20 Men’s World Cup which was previously scheduled for this year, might be postponed to 2022. This has been presented among the other options, says a member of the board.

Will T20 Cricket World Cup be Postponed? ICC member Reveals

The International Cricket Council (ICC) Board has scheduled a meeting on May 28th in order to discuss the flag ship events, and the conditions of the game to play. Conditions including applying saliva to the ball, which now increases the possibility of contracting the novel coronavirus.

The ICC’s Events Committee, is expected to present multiple options. “We are expecting three options from the ICC Events Committee. First option is having T20 as per schedule with 14-day quarantine with crowd being allowed. The back-up for this option could be tournament in-front of an empty stadium. The third option could be shifting the tournament to 2022,” a Board member told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

The Meeting is mainly for deciding the fate of T20 World Cup. However, it will also discuss providing a two-month extension for the Shashank Manohar, the Chairman.

The Board member added, “Also ICC might find its cash flow being hampered but it’s a short term problem. If the tournament happens in 2022, the parent body doesn’t lose anything because its deferment not postponement.”
