The International Cricket Council (ICC) will discuss the future of the upcoming T20 World Cup 2020 in its Chief Executive Committee’s meeting on April 23.
Following the current coronavirus epidemic, the mega event, scheduled in October this year, is in jeopardy. The ICC is now considering several options to save the T20 World Cup and other cricket related activities later in the year.
According to the sources, ICC is considering an option to conduct the event behind closed doors. ICC’s Chief Executive Manu Sawhney will lead the meeting which will be attended by all the stakeholders and representatives of cricket boards via video link.
CEO Wasim Khan will represent Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) in the meeting. Khan is confident to contribute their experience of making efforts to resume cricket in the country.
It must be noted here that all major sports events across the world have been postponed due to widely-spread coronavirus.
