The coronavirus outbreak has so far claimed more than 21,000 lives and infected over 4,00,000 globally, prompting countries to shut down borders and operate on lockdown mode. "Our commitment to the health and safety of players, officials, staff and fans is our priority when taking these decisions and we must act responsibly in the best interests of all involved and be guided by official advice". ICC events dating back to 1975, including the men's and women's ICC Cricket World Cups and T20 World Cups, the Champions Trophy as well as the U19 World Cups have been made available.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Thursday that all qualifying events for the 2021 T20 World Cup and 50-overs version in 2023 that were scheduled to be held before June 30 have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Reflecting on the decision, ICC Chief Executive Manu Sawhney said, "We are facing unprecedented times as a sports industry and the need to connect with our fan communities is perhaps greater than ever".
