No International Cricket Council (ICC) member has asked for a change in the schedule for the Men's T20 World Cup, an ICC source said.
"Nothing has changed since the board meeting release and no member is asking for a date change as of now," the source told ANI.
The ICC Board met on March 27 via teleconference to discuss the impact of the pandemic on the sport globally.
The COVID-19 took a huge toll on sports all across the globe as it has forced the postponement of several competitions including the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
However, ICC on March 17 said the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2020 will "go ahead as scheduled" despite the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
The ICC T20 World Cup is scheduled to be played between October 18 to November 15 at seven venues across Australia.
"In response to the ongoing coronavirus crisis, the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Local Organising Committee is monitoring the situation closely with relevant authorities, and will continue to do so," ICC had said in a statement.
"The ICC Men's T20 World Cup is scheduled to take place from 18 October - 15 November 2020 in seven venues across Australia. We are planning for the event to go ahead as scheduled," the statement added.
