Due to Increasing COVID-19 Cases, ICC Postpones Two Qualifying Events

    Due to the increasing COVID-19 case, two separate qualifying tournaments were cancelled by International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday.

    The ICC has delayed the September Series of Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 in Namibia and the August 2 Division of the U19 Cricket World Cup in Tanzania.

    The World Cup League 2 series which was going to take place in Namibia in September, was part of the qualification for the 2023 World Cup, involving Namibia, Papua New Guinea and the United States, the ICC said in a statement.

    The ICC said the safety of the well-being of players, coaches, administrators, fans and the entire cricket community continues to be its focus.

    “With ongoing international travel restrictions, global health concerns still prominent and on government and public health authority advice in relation to COVID-19 we have decided in partnership with members, to postpone two further qualifying events,” ICC Head of Events, Chris Tetley said.

    The governing board of the game also said it is monitoring and reviewing the remaining U19 World Cup Regional Qualifier Division 2 in Asia from 1-9 December in Thailand.

    On the occasion of the continued coronavirus pandemic, the ICC on Monday postponed the T20 World Cup, which was originally scheduled for October-November in Australia this year.
