The International Cricket Council (ICC) board met via teleconference on Friday to discuss the potential impact of coronavirus on the sport's forthcoming global events.

With cricket ceased across the spectrum there are growing question marks over the ongoing World Test Championship, which is likely to fall considerably behind schedule as fixtures continue to be postponed ahead of next summer planned Lord's final, and October's Twenty20 World Cup in October.

Both competitions would have been high on the list as the game's leading administrators debated issues related to the current lay-off but with no immediate decision necessary, there were no firm conclusions at this early stage.

ICC chief executive Manu Sawhney said: "We continue to undertake a comprehensive business continuity and contingency planning exercise which will allow us to adapt to the rapidly evolving world in which we find ourselves.

"The ICC management will continue our contingency planning around ICC events and will also work with Members to explore all options available to us based on a range of scenarios connected to the pandemic."
