ICC Women’s World Cup 2021, as per the existing schedule, is all set to be commenced by February. New Zealand that has got the hosting rights, might be deprived of hosting because of the delay in the decision on the events by ICC.
The future of the ICC T20 World Cup and Asia Cup is still hanging by a thread. In case if the schedule disrupts and the events are moved on, the ICC Women’s World Cup 2021 will also face several changes in its schedule.
The fate of the ICC Women’s World Cup 2021 also in doubt amidst the scheduling issues
Ellyse Perry, the former Australian all-rounder, thinks the fate of the Women’s World Cup is now dependent upon Men’s World Cup. She further maintained that it can be tough to hold two mega-events in a year.
“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.
