The International Cricket Council (ICC) members will engage in a video conference on Friday to discuss about the back-up plans for some of the events in the wake of global lockdown due to novel coronavirus pandemic.
The ICC T20 World Cup scheduled in Australia from mid-October along with some bilateral Test series which are part of World Test Championship, could be postponed as a result of the widespread pandemic.
It is unlikely that a decision will be made right now although it is certainl to come under discussion. PTI revealed that one ICC Board member made this clear.
“It’s more about an update on contingency planning at this stage. In case of an extreme situation, there should be plan B and C ready. So we board members need to understand the options available,” the administrator said.
“Obviously, the situation currently is very serious and COVID-19 and its implications is on agenda. But if you think logically, World T20 is in October and final of World Test Championship is in June, 2021. So we have time and no point in taking any decision in haste. No decisions expected on Friday. It’s more of a stock taking,” he added.
