Three men’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers in Africa and Asia — pathway tournaments to the 2022 showpiece event in Australia — have been postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic, the game’s governing body ICC said on Thursday.

The Asia A Qualifier, which was due to be hosted between April 3 and 9, involving Bahrain, Kuwait, Maldives, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, will now be played in Kuwait between October 23 to 29.

The decisions were taken due to new restrictions being put in place by several participating countries to suspend sporting activities to limit the spread of the new COVID-19 variants, therefore giving no opportunity for teams to sufficiently train.

The other contributing factor was the extensive quarantine requirements for the visiting teams on their return to their respective countries.

The men’s T20 World Cup Sub Regional Africa A and B Qualifiers were due to take place in South Africa in April this year and have been rescheduled to October 25-31.
