ICC To Decide T20 World Cup 2020, May Be IPL

The decision of the International Cricket Council (ICC) to be held on Wednesday, via teleconferencing, on the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia in October-November this year.  The ICC is scheduled to meet today to discuss the T20 World Cup, future events, election of the next chairman of the board and recommendations of the technical committee.  With this meeting, the situation on the IPL will be cleared to a great extent.

 The International Cricket Council is expected to discuss the T20 World Cup 2020 at the next board meeting in Bali, Australia.  Cricket's apex body is yet to decide the date of the next board meeting.  However, ICC sources told ANI that the meeting could be held next week, but no confirmation of what the date would be.

 ICC sources said, "No date has been set yet, but it will be in the next one week, but the date has not been confirmed."  When asked about the agenda such as the announcement on the T20 World Cup and the election in the ICC, the source said, "No details have been released so far, but there is a possibility that the T20 World Cup will be discussed."  The T20 World Cup 2020 is to be played in Australia from 18 October to 15 November.

 Earlier in the month, ICC President Shashank Manohar resigned from his post after a two-year term.  In his place, Imran Khawaja has become the chairman of the ICC in the interim.  It is believed that Khwaja has to decide the future of the T20 World Cup.  The future of this year's Indian Premier League ie IPL hangs on the future of T20 World Cup, because IPL is possible in the same window.

 The corona virus epidemic has affected the cricket calendar for about 6 months.  The IPL has been postponed for the time being, while the Asia Cup to be held this year in the T20 format has been canceled.  Reports also suggest that the BCCI may postpone the T20 series between India and Australia to be held in October, as the series will have no significance when the T20 World Cup is postponed.
