In a meeting on May 22, the ICC Board may think of the option of postponing the T20 World Cup to 2021, a member of the world governing body’s influential Board told PTI on Friday.
ICC may find favours with Cricket Australia for shifting of the T20 World Cup, as per the Board member.
The ICC flagship tournament is planned to be held in Australia from October 18 to November 15. It is determined that numerous options will be present by the ICC’s Committee led by Chris Tetley.
“We are expecting three options from the ICC Events Committee. First option is having World 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 privy to the development told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
The Board meeting will also give a thought on the extension of Chairman Shashank Manohar for two-month but presently focus is on deciding the future of T20 World Cup.
A tour is scheduled to be held in November-December between Australia and India including Test and ODI series.
