The International Cricket Council (ICC) has finally taken the deferred decision to postpone the ICC T20 World Cup indefinitely.
The decision was deferring for a longer span. As Australia had earlier revealed that hosting the mega-evet with people from multiple countries would be difficult amidst the pandemic, ICC still hanged the decision. As the final call has been made, the cricketing nations now have the opportunity to schedule their bilateral series or domestic cricket.
The mega-event was to be staged by 18th October and now will either be shifted somewhere in between 2021-2023.
However, ICC has not clarified if the 2021 edition will go ahead in India and if the 2023 edition will be played in Australia.

“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.”
