The International Cricket Council (ICC) has stalled the 2021 Women’s World Cup qualifiers because of a deadly coronavirus. Not just that the Women’s World Cup but also the qualifying round of Euro Division Two of those 2022 U-19 World Cup was jaded by the entire governing body of cricket. In this kind of circumstance, there’s a feeling that the T20 World Cup will be held in Australia following October.
The qualifiers for its 2021 Women’s World Cup and the European qualifiers for its 2022 Under-19 World Cup were scheduled to be held next July. The decision had been taken following talks with the authorities and public health authorities of the ICC member nations.
Chris Tetley, head of the ICC’s event committee, stated: We’re postponing the 2021 Women’s World Cup qualifiers and the 2022 Under-19 World Cup qualifiers in Europe, after journey complexities, health dangers and the help of the Department of Public Health.”
Earlier, the India-Pakistan series, as well as the series between South Africa and Australia and Sri Lanka and New Zealand, were canceled due to Corona. The Indian girls qualified to play in the main draw of the World Cup without sharing the points.
Our principal aim is the health of the players, coaches, officials, and cricket lovers stated Tetley. Which compelled us to suspend global cricket and postpone events such as the World Cup qualifiers. I thank All of the member states for their collaboration.’ The best 3 teams at the qualifiers will have an opportunity to play at the primary attraction of following year’s World Cup.
Another two regional qualifiers for the Under-19 World Cup are scheduled to happen in Tanzania from August 7 to 14 in Africa. The Asian qualifiers are scheduled to be held in Thailand from December 1 to 9. The ICC is considering them. The ICC hasn’t mentioned when the postponed tournaments will occur.
