ICC T20 World Cup postponed

There was already a hint that there would be no T20 World Cup this year. The global situation of the Corona epidemic is now such that it is unrealistic to host such a big tournament, a fear by the host Australian Cricket Board itself. That is what happened in the end. Today, after a meeting of the ICC, it has been finally announced that the T20 World Cup will not be held this year.

The T20 World Cup is scheduled to be held in Australia from October 16 to November 15 this year. Then next year there will be another T20 World Cup in India. However, due to the coronavirus situation, the question of whether this year’s tournament will end or not has become a big question in the last few months. It took some time for the ICC to make a final decision. That decision has finally come tomorrow.
