The ICC T20 World Cup 2020 is scheduled to be held in October-November 2020. The ICC has said that the final decision will be taken only after the condition of coronavirus is normal. There was a meeting of the Chief Executive Committee on Thursday, but this meeting could not take any decision regarding the future of the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia later this year.
The BCCI says that due to the coronavirus and its effects, it is not possible for the World Cup to be held in October and November. A BCCI official said that many things will be taken care of regarding this event, but that will be possible only when the situation becomes normal. Due to the increasing outbreak of Coronavirus in the world, this event is seen to be eclipsed.

Gathering people is a matter of concern
The BCCI official said, ‘To be honest, it is difficult to have a T20 World Cup in October 2020, it is difficult to think about gathering so many people at this time. He told that at this time you do not know when it will be safe to travel abroad. Some are saying in June, some are saying even after this. In such a situation, the traffic will be opened only then it will be reviewed for its impact.
How will the safety of the people gathered
The BCCI official said whether ICC and Cricket Australia will guarantee the lives of the people involved in this entire process. He said, ‘The question is whether CA and ICC will take responsibility for the people who participate in such a big tournament. After this, there is a talk on the government. Can the Australian Government take this risk? If so, what will be the approval timeline?
