Former skipper Inzamam-ul-Haq believes the ICC Twenty20 Cricket World Cup should not be sidelined, as to give room to a league or series, saying this would divert the focus of players on private leagues, instead of international matches, which was not good for the game.

"These are the things that sources and internal people are talking about that it is decided the T20 World Cup won't happen.

The tournament was scheduled to take place from October 18 to November 15 in Australia but was under threat due to novel COVID-19 pandemic.

Inzamam, who was appointed as the chief selector of Pakistan team in April 2016, said he was not saying that ICC was doing any such kind a thing, but even if this kind of an impression was seen than it would not be good for cricket. "I have also heard that objections are also raised on the dates of the Asia Cup as it is clashing with some other event. ICC, Asian Cricket Council and all cricket boards should sit together and give a strong message that any such kind of impression (giving priority to private leagues instead of international cricket), won't take place," he said.
