The ICC has backup plans in place for the T20 World Cup scheduled to be held in India in October-November, 2021.
The tournament is scheduled to be held in October-November in India, which is reporting over one lakh daily cases of coronavirus for the past few days. Amid the surge in cases, the IPL is due to start on Friday in Chennai behind closed doors.
“We are certainly proceeding with the event as planned,” Allardice said during a virtual media round-table. “Plan B we have, but we haven’t activated those plans yet. We are working with the BCCI, we do have backup plans that can be activated if the time comes,” he added.
Allardice, ICC’s general manger – cricket, was recently made the interim CEO after Manu Sawhney was sent on “leave” after his conduct came under the scanner during an internal investigation by UK-based audit firm PricewaterhouseCoopers.
