Karachi: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said that it will not support any move to reschedule this year’s World T20 Cup to 2021 as it will affect the entire international calendar.

A PCB official said before the International Cricket Council meetings starting Thursday to discuss the fate of the World T20, Pakistan’s stand would have to be pushed for a wait and watch policy.

“We are in May and there is still time. ICC members should wait and see where this coronovirus epidemic goes. The staging of this event can be decided even after two months,” he said. .

He also said that by that time it used to be clear that member boards could resume full-scale cricketing activities in line with the policies of their governments on the epidemic.

“No cricket is being played right now but in two months we will know what the situation is because the West Indies and Pakistan have to play in England if things go according to plan,” he said.

The media has speculated that ICC board members may move the global event by February-March next year or postpone it to 2022 as another World T20 Cup is scheduled in India in 2021.

PCB sources confirmed that the board is not happy with the report that the Asia Cup and World T20 will be postponed this year, giving the Cricket Board of India (BCCI) a possible window for the IPL to be held.

“The IPL is a domestic incident of the BCCI and cannot be given preference over ICC events or bilateral agreements. Pakistan will not support such a move,” a source said.

But he admitted that in the event of Asia Cup and World T20 Cup not being held this year, PCB is already working on plans to start cricket activities.

The BCCI has said that if the IPL is not organized this year, it would be a loss of about Rs 4000 crore.
