The International Cricket Council (ICC) will review its contingency plans tomorrow for this year's men's Twenty20 World Cup in Australia and discuss how to resume sporting activity once the COVID-19 pandemic subsides.
Due to start on October 18 in Geelong, the Twenty20 World Cup could be jeopardised by the ongoing crisis with professional cricket halted for the time being.
ICC announced a meeting of its Chief Executives' Committee (CEC) and said in a statement, "They will receive an update on the continuing contingency planning for all ICC global events, including the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2020."
Already the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been postponed indefinitely due to the virus and the World Test Championship has been affected too.
ICC also said, "The purpose of the meeting is to gain a full understanding of member priorities during this time and to discuss and share the key mitigation factors required to resume international cricket based on Government advice in each territory."
To date there are more than 2.59 million confirmed cases of COVID-19 worldwide which has resulted in the deaths of over 181,000 people.
ICC's chief executive Manu Sawhney has stressed that cooperation will be the best way to restart cricket as soon as possible.
Sawhney said, "We need to share knowledge and start to build a deep understanding of what it will take to resume international cricket.
"Countries will start to reopen at different stages and in different ways and we will need to respect that.
"In relation to ICC events, including the ICC Men's T20 World Cup, we will continue to take advice from experts and authorities including the Australian Government."
Australia also held the ICC Women's T20 World Cup prior to the widespread disruption of coronavirus to the sporting calendar.
The hosts won the tournament by beating India in the final.
