“Given the current significant global
health concerns and restrictions on movement imposed by governments around the world, the ICC has decided to postpone all events until late June, subject to further review,” said Chris Tetley. ICC event manager said.
“Work continues on contingency plans and options for both men’s qualification paths. We will provide updates to these plans in due course and decisions regarding the implementation of the remaining events this year.”
India will host the T20 World Championship next year and the 50 overs event in 2023. Due to the ICC decision, up to eight events will now be postponed.
This year’s T20 Women’s World Cup took place in Australia from February to March, where the men’s version will also take place from October. The World Cup trophy tour for the men’s event, which was due to start next month, has also been postponed.
