Following months of deliberations and delays, The International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia 2020 has been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The tournament was due to take place between 18 October and 15 November. An edition will be held in October and November 2021 and another in 2022.
“The decision gives us the best possible opportunity of delivering two safe and successful T20 World Cups,” said International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive Manu Sawhney. “Our members now have the clarity they need around event windows to enable them to reschedule lost bilateral and domestic cricket.”
However, It has not been announced whether the 2021 tournament will be held in India as planned, and the 2022 competition in Australia, or the Australia edition will be moved to 2021 and India to 2022. The ICC also announced that the 2023 50-over men’s World Cup in India will move from February and March to October and November. This decision took two months before coming up with the final decision.
“Throughout this process we have worked closely with our key stakeholders including governments, Members, broadcasters, partners and medical experts to enable us to reach a collective decision for the good of the game and our fans. I would like to thank everyone involved for their commitment to a safe return to cricket,” Sawhney added.
