The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have decided to go ahead with the IPL 2020 plans, as ICC postponed the decision about the T20 World Cup. Initially, T20 World Cup 2020 was scheduled to play from October in Australia. But due to the outbreak of coronavirus, the fate of T20 World Cup this year is yet to be decided. Because the Government have implemented lockdown in many countries & also the International travel was suspended. On June 10, Wednesday, International Cricket Council (ICC) had a virtual video conference meeting. Everyone expected that, the fate of T20 World Cup this year will be decided on the meeting, but still ICC didn't have a clear view about T20 World Cup this year. The decision was postponed to next month & ICC also decided that to give the BCCI another six months to obtain mandatory tax exemptions for hosting tournaments.
