ICC T20 World Cup 2020 which was scheduled to happen in Australia this year is likely to postpone for year 2022 amid fear of coronavirus.
We all are familiar with the day to day increase of COVID-19 pandemic. Every sports event are delayed and being postponed for next year. Olympics 2020 had already been postponed for a year.
With the growing fear of coronavirus pandemic, ICC is likely to postpone this years’ World Cup to 2022.
As ICC World Cup 2021 is already set to host by India, it would be very difficult for ICC to manage two mega events in same year.
“The question being internally discussed was to postpone it but there was no status quo on ‘until when?’ Well, India is scheduled to tour Australia in December. Early next year, Australia have their Big Bash scheduled. March would not be an ideal time (with IPL to begin in April) because the broadcaster won’t agree to back-to-back T20 events.India is anyway hosting the 2021 T20 World Cup. So, the ideal choice has to be 2022,” one of the source said as quoted by The Time of India.
