The deadlock over the future of this year’s T20 World Cup in Australia is expected to be resolved at the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) board meeting on Wednesday. It may also be announced to start the nomination process for the next chairman in this meeting.
Board members can take a firm decision on the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia at this time, which is being clouded by the Kovid-19 epidemic. Will the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) agree to host Cricket Australia in 2022 instead of 2021?

In response to this question, BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal said that first let the ICC announce what they intend for this year’s World Cup. No official announcement has been made regarding this year’s tournament yet.
A senior ICC board official said on the condition of confidentiality that India will either host the 2021 tournament as per the pre-determined schedule and it will be held in Australia in 2022, or vice versa. In any case, this decision will have to be made keeping in mind the bilateral series.
