Men’s T20 world cup is not happening then? International Cricket Council has not yet made that decision. The ICC has not agreed to make a final decision on the 2020 Twenty20 World Cup before August. However, Brandon McCullum’s idea is that the coronavirus and the IPL will send this year’s T20 World Cup next year.

Australia is hosting the men in October and November, with the women’s event in New Zealand in February 2021.

Cricket Australia says it is “jointly exploring all other options” in staging the T20 World Cup, but will “take the right decisions at the right time”.

Following a meeting on Thursday, the ICC said it had a view to rescheduling as much of the postponed cricket as possible. The Chief Executives Committee (CEC) of the 12 Full Members and three Associate representatives will meet again in four weeks. Still, there is currently no timeframe on when they will make decisions.

The CEC was updated on the continuing contingency planning for all ICC global events, including the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020 and the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2021. Planning for both events as currently scheduled is ongoing.

“Our next step is to create a roadmap for the resumption of international cricket,” said Dr. Peter Harcourt, chair of the ICC medical committee.

“This will consider everything from player preparation to government restrictions and advisories and bio-bubbles.

ICC Chief Executive Manu Sawhney said: “I am grateful to my fellow CEOs for their clear commitment to a unified approach to steering cricket through this pandemic. We will work in partnership for the best outcomes for the sport with both ICC events and bilateral cricket.”
