Pakistan won’t support rescheduling of T20 WC

May 29, 2020

LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has vowed that it would not support any move to reschedule ICC T20 World Cup later this year to 2021.

According to reports, Pakistan’s stance at the board meeting will be to push for a wait and watch policy. “We are in May and there is still time. The ICC members should wait and see where this Coronavirus pandemic goes. A decision on staging the event can be taken even after say two months,” PCB official said.

“There is no cricket being played right now but in two months’ time we will know what is the position because West Indies and Pakistan are to play in England if things go according to plan,” he added. The sources have speculated that the ICC board members might move the tournament to February-March next year or even postpone it to 2022 as another World T20 Cup is scheduled in India in 2021.Sources also confirmed that PCB was not happy with reports that the Asia Cup and World T20 will be postponed this year, giving BCCI a possible window to organise the IPL.
