The member boards are set to participate in an ICC teleconference in the coming week, when an official decision will be taken. With Australia's international borders closed till mid-September, incoming passengers requiring to undergo two-week quarantine and plenty more logistical issues facing ICC and Cricket Australia, the situation is not in favour of a 16-team tournament. According to the report, the ICC will discuss alternate options including Australia hosting the tournament in February/March 2021, India and Australia swapping hosting rights for the T20 World Cups (Australia to host in 2021, India in 2022), and Australia hosting the tournament in 2022.

India are also in talks with Cricket South Africa for a three-T20I series in South Africa in August. "IPL is one of the greatest engagers. More people watched the IPL last year than those who voted for general elections. For sponsors, cricket is a leader and it will lead the way. The recovery will be sharper than a V-shaped recovery," he had said. The election process to replace outgoing ICC chief Shashank Manohar is also set to be discussed during the ICC conference.
