Australia has locked itself out for six months. This can change the situation. Great Britain can also implement this. We still have to understand what the Indian government decides to keep the international borders closed. In this situation, October-November only seems to be a safe time, but at this time there will be a T20 World Cup.

The official said that if the ICC postpones the World Cup by looking at the current situation, then only we can think about it in October-November because if we assume that all countries have already closed the lockdown for six months, then it should end in October Will go, but for this, it is necessary to stop the coronavirus and things must come under human control.
