BCB CEO speaks to ICC about the future of upcoming schedule
All types of cricket matches have been suspended due to the epidemic of coronavirus. The ICC’s digital meeting was held on Thursday (April 23rd) with the chief executives of 12 Test playing nations and three associate countries to discuss the future of the upcoming series.
Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) CEO Nizamuddin Chowdhury took part in the meeting as the representative of Bangladesh. At the end of the meeting, he said, in the conference, it was discussed how to reschedule the postponed series.
However, in the meeting, there was no discussion about the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia in October. That was what Nizamuddin Chowdhury said. “It’s basically a meeting about exchanging information and updating,” Nizamuddin said.
“ICC member countries have spoken out about the current situation due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) among them. Discussions have been held on how to reschedule the tours that have been postponed as promised in future tour plans.”
Nizamuddin Chowdhury added, “Since the T20 World Cup is in the ICC’s schedule, it is limited to the update stage. There was no decision or discussion about it.”
Cricket is currently suspended in all countries of the world due to the global epidemic of coronavirus. One by one the upcoming series are also being canceled. Two big events like the Asia Cup in August and the T20 World Cup in October are also in doubt. In such a situation, International Cricket Council (ICC) CEO Manu Sawhney has held a digital meeting with the chief executives of 12 Test playing nations and 3 partner countries. It is learned that the highest body of world cricket will meet again in a month.
