Asked about the fate of the Indian Premier League, the official said that an official announcement can only be made once the ICC makes an announcement with regards to the T20 World Cup which is scheduled to be played in Australia in the October-November window.
"We cannot make an announcement till the ICC gives us a final call on the T20 World Cup. But we could see an official word after Monday's ICC meeting and once that is done, we can go ahead and make the necessary announcement," the official explained.
Even though calls for postponement of the 2020 edition of the T20 World Cup have grown in the last couple of months, the ICC has preferred to play the waiting game and is yet to make an official announcement on the fate of the showpiece event.
