ICC:

The BCCI Apex Council took the decision to hold the Indian Premier League (IPL) in October-November, likely in the UAE, should the ICC postpone the T20 World Cup.

A lot of Members boards, including the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) want clarity on the future of the ICC event so they can plan bilateral series. The BCCI Apex Council took the decision to hold the Indian Premier League (IPL) in October-November, likely in the UAE, should the ICC postpone the T20 World Cup. Hosts Cricket Australia (CA) Chairman Earl Eddings has already spoken about staging the T20 World Cup in October-November being “unrealistic”.

At the same time, there’s a school of thought that a World Cup behind closed doors isn’t a “realistic” option. It would be interesting to see if the ICC Board decides the T20 World Cup’s fate tomorrow.
