ICC aims to be fully satisfied with the conduct of the T20 World Cup as it believes that the health and safety of teams and other stakeholders, including broadcasters, cannot be compromised.

The ICC delegation will visit India in the next few days, but in the current situation, going to India is also being considered a challenge for the delegation itself.

The ICC is also set to review India's nine proposed venues for the World Cup. The council will make the final decision on the venues after reviewing them.
