The ICC on Tuesday cleared the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup, to be held in Australia in October, and said that the tournament will take place as per scheduled.
The ICC T20 World Cup 2020 is scheduled to be played between October 18 to November 15 at seven venues across Australia.
"In response to the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Local Organising Committee is monitoring the situation closely with relevant authorities, and will continue to do so," ICC said in a statement.

"The ICC Men's T20 World Cup is scheduled to take place from 18 October - 15 November 2020 in seven venues across Australia. We are planning for the event to go ahead as scheduled," the statement added.

The coronavirus pandemic has taken a huge toll on sports all across the globe and cricket is not an exception.

Earlier, Cricket Australia (CA) chief Kevin Roberts said that he was hoping that the men’s T20 World Cup could be played as per schedule in normal circumstances.

“We’re really hoping that all forms of sport can be played again in a few weeks or a few months’ time”.
