ICC announced this decision on twitter today, saying “Two ICC qualifying events, including the women’s cricket world cup qualifier in Sri Lanka, have postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic.”

ICC head of events Chris Tetley said that “In light of the continuing travel restrictions, global health concerns and government and public health authority advice we’ve decided to postpone two further upcoming qualifying events thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier and therefore the Europe qualifier to the U19 Cricket World Cup 2022 have both been impacted.”

He further said that, “Our priority during this difficult period is to guard the well-being of players, coaches, officials, fans and therefore the whole cricket community and that we will make well-informed, responsible decisions in reference to both postponing events and resuming international cricket.”

“These are both important events with the Women’s CWC Qualifier one step faraway from New Zealand 2021 and therefore the Europe qualifier which signifies the beginning of the U19 Cricket World Cup 2022 pathway. We will add partnership with the Members to seek out an appropriate window to reschedule these events as soon as is safe and practical to try to so. I would wish to thank the Members for his or her cooperation and continued support.” He added.
