ICC To Decide T20 World Cup Fate On June
The T20 World Cup appears to be on its way out of India, with a decision expected at the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Executive Board meeting on June 1.
The BCCI’s Special General Meeting (SGM)
The BCCI’s Special General Meeting (SGM), which takes place on May 29, two days before the ICC, is not purely accidental. It’s a well-thought-out strategy, and the board will be prepared for the ICC meeting with the general body’s decision.
Preparing For A Potential Third Wave Of The COVID-19
The BCCI has weakened its case to host the 16-team T20 WC in October-November, when Indian government authorities, including state government officials, are preparing for a potential third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic suspension of the IPL 2021 amid the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in India.
“The case numbers are dropping and we do not think that it will take a U-turn again, and this is after we are testing everyone we can. But we are preparing ourselves for the third wave, if any, by having more jumbo field hospitals,” Mumbai Municipal Commissioner Iqbal Chahal had said
“The ICC is not unaware of the situation but one cannot speculate on what will be the decision on June 1. One has to wait and see,”

India’s Team Has Begun Quarantine
Except for those in and near Mumbai, all members of the Indian contingent traveling to the UK have arrived in the city to begin their quarantine and all of them were flown in by charter planes from various parts of the country and will be kept in complete isolation until June 2 when the team will go to the United Kingdom for the World Test Championship Final and a five-match series against England.
“The request puts the ECB in a tricky position, stuck between the rock of wanting to maintain good relations with the most powerful cricket nation as well as being as flexible and helpful as possible given the postponement of the game’s most financially lucrative competition, and the hard place of not impacting on their own carefully planned domestic schedule. At this late stage, it is hard to see the ECB acceding to any potential change and it is expected to hold its ground,” Mike Atherton
