If the tournament gets postponed for the COVID-19, there is a chance of the BCCI hosting Indian Premier League in that window. On Thursday, the ICC will have a teleconference with all the members to take a final call. A member meanwhile revealed to PTI, “There is a good chance that postponement of World T20 will be decided during Thursday’s board meeting. Whether there will be a formal announcement or not is the question.”
