Axe set to fall on T20 World Cup – Sydney Morning Herald

Frustrated at being hamstrung by the ICCs indecision, the Board of Control for Cricket in India said the BCCI had to begin planning for its upcoming season, which is extensively anticipated to include an IPL tournament in October. However, with India having gone beyond Russia to now have the third most coronavirus cases worldwide, Sri Lanka and the United Arab Emirates are looming as most likely candidates to host the event.
” The year began on a terrible note and theres been no relief on any front. It is time for the BCCI to begin preparing for the year ahead,” BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal informed The Times of India on Monday.
” Those outcomes and announcements are not in our hands. The T20 World Cup, for example, is being delayed so let the announcement come when it needs to.
” Domestic leagues are in focus while the Olympics and the World Cups are taking a back-seat. Thats since local leagues do not depend on a lot of external elements to get going … What BCCI is discussing is making strategies, even if at the contingency levels, for September onwards.”
