The fate of World T20, IPL might be decided today

The International Cricket Council (ICC) could decide on the fate of the 2020 T20 World Cup at its committee meeting on Thursday. The T20 is scheduled in Australia from October 18 to November 15. Consistent with ICC’s contingency plans, the 2020 World Cup is often postponed to 3 possible slots: February-March 2021, October 2021, or October 2022. The BCCI and ICC’s richest affiliate, wouldn’t want the primary two options.

The official also said pushing the 2020 World Cup to October 2021 would mean the one India is meant to carry at that point goes to 2022 and BCCI wouldn’t want that. it might force us to host two World Cup s in six months because the 50-over World Cup has been allotted to India in Feb-March 2023.

BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal said we aren’t saying that the T20 World Cup be postponed. It’s a call Cricket Australia will need to take. “The ICC has not taken a choice to postpone the T20 World Cup and preparations are ongoing for the event in Australia this year as per plan. The topic is on the agenda for the ICC committee meeting and a choice is going to be made.

One of those mails told BCCI that the 2021 T20 World Cup might be taken away from India should the dispute not be solved. BCCI’s request to increase the deadline till June 30 citing the national lockdown has been turned down by ICC.
