ICC Women’s World Cup 2021 also in doubt amidst the scheduling issues
“It depends on what happens to the men’s T20 World Cup, that could have an impact on the women’s World Cup,” Australian all-rounder Ellyse Perry was quoted as saying by Stuff.co.nz.
“If that (men’s T20) tournament is postponed to next year, it’s pretty hard to think two world events are feasible to run at about the same time. I would imagine those events can’t be played concurrently.
“It’s really hard to have a gut feel of where things might go. In the scheme of things a World Cup seems a bit irrelevant given everything else that has gone on,” Ellyse Perry added.
“It’s really complicated. We’re doing a lot of work and providing analysis for the ICC but it’s ultimately a decision that will be made by the ICC board,” Nick Hockley said.
