In the upcoming meeting this week, a discussion on venues for the next two T20 World Cups will be part of the agenda of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Board meeting. The heads of BCCI and Cricket Australia will be connecting virtually to discuss the hosting of two T20 World Cups in the next two years. Swapping of hosting rights the 2021 and 2022 editions of the T20 World Cups is in the cards.
Earlier, the ICC postponed the Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia following the threats of the coronavirus pandemic. However, it is not clear if the postponed edition will still be held in Australia. It is expected that BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah along with CA’s Earl Eddings and Nick Hockley will reach a consensus on the hosting of 2021 and 2022 editions.

“The main agenda of the meeting is scheduling of ICC tournaments including the women’s ODI World Cup in New Zealand early next year. It is expected that some decisions will be taken,” an ICC Board member told a news portal. Finalising election procedure for the next chairman and an update on the next year’s Women’s World Cup in New Zealand will also be discussed in the said meeting.
BCCI was originally scheduled to host the T20 World Cup in 2021. However, Cricket Australia will likely insist to host the tournament in October 2021 as it had already started preparations and wouldn’t like to wait for two years. There is also a good chance that the eight-team Women’s ODI World Cup in New Zealand in February-March 2021 will go ahead as scheduled.
“Yes, the qualification tournament is yet to be finished and since every country’s Covid situation is different, that is one headache that the ICC has. Going by health safety issues, New Zealand is one of the best performing nations globally,” another ICC board member said. As for the ICC chairman election, the much-delayed election procedure is set to be finalised in the said meeting.
