WELLINGTON, July 21: New Zealand Cricket chairman Greg Barclay has said that a decision on the fate of the 2021 Women�s World Cup will be taken in the next two weeks.
Barclay�s comments came after the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday said the event, to be held in New Zealand from February 6 to March 7, was still on schedule despite the COVID-19 threat.
The ICC, however, was forced to postpone the men�s T20 World Cup in Australia, which was to be in October-November.
�The decision (about the ODI World Cup) will be made in the next two weeks,� Barclay told Radio New Zealand.
�...because if there is a need to postpone that event then obviously we need to know that sooner rather than later and likewise if it is to go ahead then we need to make a final decision so that we can throw all the resources necessary to run a first class world event in February.� � PTI
