The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday cancelled 3 T20 World Cup sub-regional European qualifiers for the 2022 edition in Australia due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the governing body confirmed.

The pathway tournaments for the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia were scheduled to be played from June 13 to July 10 in Finland and Belgium.

Italy, Germany, and Denmark will now qualify from the Europe sub regional qualifiers A, B and C respectively determined by their position in the ICC T20I Team Rankings as on April 30, 2020. They will now join Jersey in the T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier scheduled to take place in Spain between October 15 and 21, 2021 with two qualifier spots up for grabs in the A or B global qualifiers.

"We have unfortunately had to cancel the three T20 World Cup Sub Regional Europe Qualifiers due to start next month as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"...due to COVID-19 restrictions and the short timelines that the European season provides to allow us to progress with the next step in the pathway, there has been no other option than to cancel.

"I would like to thank Cricket Finland, the Belgium Cricket Federation and all participating Members for their collective support in coming to this decision," ICC Head of Events, Chris Tetley said in a statement.
