The ICC has officially declared the postponement the much-awaited T20 World Cup for men due to COVID-19.
The International Cricket Council has concluded the fate of the Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 in their board meeting. The event which was supposed to take place on October 18 had thoroughly been delayed due to the effects of the pandemic.
As per ICC’s chief executive Manu Sawhney, ‘We have undertaken a comprehensive and complex contingency planning exercise and through this process, our number one priority has been to protect the health and safety of everyone involved in the sport’.
‘The decision to postpone the ICC Men's T20 World Cup was taken after careful consideration of all of the options available to us and gives us the best possible opportunity of delivering two safe and successful T20 World Cups for fans around the world’, he added.
Aside from that, it has also been clarified that moving the Men’s T20 World Cup to a later window would maintain the integrity of the qualification process. As the main event becomes postponed, the vacated time will then be used to reschedule the games which ensure the qualification of the teams.
So far, the ICC has also shifted the calendar to adjust the Men’s T20 World Cup until 2023. From the usual dates which were from February to March, the event will now be held from October to November.
